The Night Santa Got Lost: How NORAD Saved Christmas

Santa has a tough job on his hands, flying around the entire world in the peak of winter can't be easy. We all know how hard it is for pilots to fly airplanes in that weather,  and  8 flying reindeer, well that can't be much easier.

Little did I know that NORAD had Santa on their radar each Christmas eve! Tracking Santa as he moves around the planet each year, NORAD, makes sure that Santa is out of danger on his annual toy delivery. NORAD helps to make sure that the children of the world wake up to a tree-full of gifts in the morning


But this year, despite leaving earlier then usual due to harsh storm winds... Santa gets lost from the radar!  NORAD pulls out all the stops to search for Santa, using their top of the line technology, but will they be able to find him in time to save Christmas?

This patriotic story, written in the style of "The Night Before Christmas" is a wonderful way to teach kids about the heroic jobs our military does everyday. By bringing in Santa so kids can relate. In days where the military doesn't always get the respect it deserves, this book is a great way to show kids how the military uses teamwork, and how important the men and women who are enlisted are to all of us.  

 Written by Micheal Keane, a Fellow of National Security at the Pacific Council on International Policy, and former Fellow of the U.S. Department of Defense's National Security Project, has stepped outside of his normal role,  writing adult military books and written a book that will bring your family together.

Micheal Garland's beautiful illustrations are just what's needed to go with this uplifting story. You and your child will love seeing the military in full uniform help Santa out, this year on Christmas!

I love this book especially being from somewhere that the military is such a big part of our community. This would be a wonderful gift for a child who's parents are in the service.
