New Children’s Book Celebrates the Christmas Spirit

A magical sleigh ride helps bring a family together in time for the holidays.

Author/illustrator Alan Anderson loves everything about Christmas – the lights, the music, the decorations, family, snow, giving gifts, the celebration of the birth of baby Jesus. In The Christmas Sleigh, he weaves his fondest memories into a children’s story book that illustrates when we care about others, life becomes richer.

Published by WestBow Press, The Christmas Sleigh introduces readers to Anya, a young girl who is out on the town celebrating the season with her parents -who are separated – putting aside their differences on behalf of their daughter for this one evening. While on a horse-drawn sleigh ride, friendly driver Tommy tells them a wondrous holiday story about his own life, which transforms their lives forever.

When Anya comes to learn Tommy’s secret, it becomes a story that can have great affect upon anyone willing to listen; Happiness can only be found as one puts forth sincere effort to make others happy.

-Alan Anderson
