Necile Saves Baby Claus, by Linda Aksomitis

Necile doesn’t know the baby she finds near Magic Forest, and adopts, will grow up to become Santa Claus. Indeed, he’ll spread the magic of Christmas around the world.

Magic Forest and the people world existed side-by-side. But many years ago, those in the people world couldn’t see Magic Forest. However, those in Magic Forest could see through to the other side. Necile has been helping the people world for centuries. Indeed, she built a cairn in the people world and has been sneaking through the barrier to leave food by it, especially during the winter.

One day, Necile finds a baby beside the cairn. The Great Ak has forbidden everyone in Magic Forest to interact with the people, but she takes the baby home anyway. The baby, who Necile names Claus, is allowed to stay and is raised in Magic Forest by the nymphs and elves. When Claus discovers he’s adopted, he wants to learn more about the world he came from. He especially wants to make the children happy, so starts on his lifetime mission to do just that.

It’s also a great adoption book to share with kids.
