Miracle on 34th Street by Valentine Davies.
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson.

Yes Virginia, There is a Santa by Francis P Church.
Eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon tries every source to find out if there is a Santa Claus and finally writes to the editor of the New York Sun for her answer. For elementary grades.
