About the Book
For a little girl named Susan, Christmas could be any other day. She doesn’t believe in Santa Claus or magic or miracles of any kind. Then one day she meets Kriss Kringle. As she doubtfully tells him the gifts she most wishes for, deep down Susan finds herself hoping that just maybe, he is the real thing. Based on the original holiday classic, Miracle on 34th Street is a heartwarming story about generosity, imagination, and the spirit of Christmas.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the NetGalley <https://www.netgalley.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
Even though the original “Miracle on 34th street,” was published a long time ago. This classic adaptation to the story is still a miracle in it’s self. This story has renewed in me a sense for the holidays, even though I no longer believe in Santa Clause.
I hope this book, especially a classic as this one, establishes a sense of hope in children and miracles when it comes to miracles this Christmas. I would recommend this book to people of all ages.
