Tinker's Christmas

When the reindeer come down with the chicken pox a week before Christmas, Santa turns to Tinker to find another means to deliver the toys. A story about belief—belief in ourselves, belief in those around us, belief in something greater than ourselves. Through reading Tinker’s Christmas to his grandsons during the holidays, Poppy helps his oldest grandson to believe in himself.
