"The Other Letter":  What Children Really Want For Christmas
"The Other Letter" , an experiment done by the organization IKEA shows what children really want for Christmas.  C hildren were asked to write two letters: one for the Three Kings (like Santa Claus) and one for their parents. They were then asked to choose only one letter to send.  
Results showed that what children really want is time, involvement and activities with their parents.  "This underscores our belief and mission" said Tekelia Kelly, author of the "Celebrate and Create!" e-book. "Our e-book was d esigned to creatively engage, educate, communicate and connect with children", said Ms. Kelly.
