The Day Santa Stopped Believing in Harold

The Day Santa Stopped Believing in Harold
By Maureen Fergus
Illustrated by Cale Atkinson
Tundra Books, 2016. Picture Book.

Santa begins to question the existence of Harold and lists the things that do not make sense—like, he knows that it is Harold’s parents who write him his letters and leave out the treats and how each year Harold looks different. But the biggest issue is that his friends--like Jack Frost and the Abominable Snow Monster--say that only babies believe in Harold. After talking to his reindeer, Santa comes up with a plan to prove Harold’s existence once and for all.

As you can tell from the title and the short blurb, this is the perfect picture book to read to the child who is having doubts about the existence of Santa Claus.
