But there's one thing she does perfectly: she hugs Daddy good night before going right to sleep! This sweet, simple story is one that all preschoolers will relate to.

This story, written for military families, is about a visit from "the Santa of Sailors" to those who can't be home for Christmas. 'Twas the night before Christmas, when way out to sea Not a creature was stirring to windward or lee. The sailors were nestled all snug in their racks Like orders of pancakes, so tight were the stacks. One Christmas Eve out at sea, some homesick sailors are paid a visit by Master Chief Claus, the Santa of Sailors. This lively and poignant tale was inspired by Clement C. Moore's classic yuletide poem.
