Yes Virginia!

I always loved the Christmas special, Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus. The story was based on a true event in which a little girl wrote to the newspaper editor to find out if there really was a Santa Claus. CBS has animated the story again and will premiere it on December 11. I thought it would be a great time to share some resources that go with this delightful story. An opportunity to teach letter and newspaper writing may be just around the corner when using these resources.

Newseum provides an online copy of the actual editorial.
