Over the last year I have been writing a blog and I've also been working on a book about my religious beliefs. So it's fair to say I've been bitten by the writing bug. I don't read fiction and I don't like to write it. I also have 3 small children. And we don't do things like Santa or whatever in this house. We have explained to our children that these are pretend and just for fun. However we don't deny them the fun of these beings either... They still get to watch Santa shows at Christmas, we simply impress on them that he's not really the one giving them gifts, cause he's pretend.
Now, here's my question. I'm in the process of finishing my book and was thinking of doing some childrens books because the ones I have wanted simply aren't out there. I've been looking for childrens books which (among other things) help children to understand that these beings are fictional, without denying them the magic... What I'm wondering is if you fall in to the category of those who don't do these things with your family, would you purchase children's books which are meant to explain this? Or do you simply prefer to do it yourself?

You write books to make money. I highly doubt any publisher would get involved with publishing books like that for children especially in this economy. That's like trying to sell frozen mice to people who like to eat them! GL, LOL!

We don't do Santa, the Easter Bunny, etc. On Christmas they get presents, from US. On Easter, they get candy from US. I would totally buy books on these subjects in the way you described. In my family, they would be extremely relevant.
