  • This book tells the story of a magical journey and young boy makes to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. The story is captivating to any child. After the story the children made a bell necklace. As the story goes, you can only hear the bell if you believe in Santa's magic. Great story.

  • Classic

    Wonderful book. My son loves listening to the CD in the car. The ornament that came with it is a little cheap looking, but I wasn't really expecting it to be collector worthy.
