Description
It's not easy being Welcome Comfort-a foster child always moving from home to home and getting picked on by the kids at school. Even Christmas, the most wondrous time of the year, isn't so wonderful for Welcome, who has no family, no presents, and no Santa Claus. "Santa! He's not even real!" But when Mr. Hamp, the school custodian, becomes his closest friend, Welcome's life changes forever. Now he has someone to visit and a family to be a part of. Yet Christmas is still a lonely time for Welcome since the Hamps go away every year and there's still no sign of Santa. "Child, he'll find you" says Mr. Hamp. "Maybe he hasn't come because you haven't believe hard enough." Accompanied by art that radiates the brilliance of the season, Patricia Polacco's heartwarming journey through the generations of a boy's life proves that "believing is seeing" and ask if perhaps there isn't a Santa Claus inside every one of us.
