Santa Claus appears in Marina’s dream and asks her for help to save the magic of Christmas from the darkness that prevails in the hearts of adults. Will little Zoe’s mom manage to spread the light and optimism of Christmas? Who will help her? The first Christmas story, which touches on the issue of the energy crisis is a fact!
My opinion
Not even a child can think about the consequences of the energy crisis. She just wants to feel the magic of Christmas and the author very cleverly conveys the message of love to us once again. The smiles of our children are enough to light up our souls. A Christmas tale for young and old, given with a lot of tenderness and love! This is an important topic to discuss with children inside classrooms or at home.
