  8. My favorite Christmas book is a little book I still have from childhood called Jolly Old Santa Claus. It was published by Ideals Publishing in 1969. Inside the cover it says it was edited by Maryjane Hooper Tonn, but no author is listed. My favorite parts of this book are the beautiful illustrations done by George Hinke. They are absolutely gorgeous and I've carried them in my memories all my life. I will always cherish this book.
