Author Biography

Tiffany A. Higgins is the author of We’ve Seen Santa. She was born in St. Charles, Illinois, grew up in Plano, Texas, and currently resides near Richmond, Michigan.
She credits her family, and especially her children, for inspiring her to write. “As I read my stories to my family, I watch their faces. Even my ‘too good for parents’ teen-aged son will sit and listen. He smiles and seems to really enjoy himself.” We’ve Seen Santa is a bedtime story that was created for Higgins’ daughter when she was two.
Her husband, Clark L. Higgins, illustrated the story for her. “This book project,” Higgins says, “has brought us all closer.”
Higgins’ next book tells the story of the seasons. Its working title is When Seasons Change. She has always loved writing. She has been writing for as long as she can remember. She has dabbled in poetry, short stories, children’s stories and hopes to one day write a novel.
She is excited to be being published for the first time in her life. This book deal is fulfilling a lifelong dream of hers.

Tiffany Higgins created a wonderful story about a childhood happiness in seeing Santa Claus. This story takes me back to the time when I was a child, so filled with happiness in the excitement of Christmas coming. The biggest fear was knowing that there were times your behavior wasn't the best and how would Santa think about leaving you presents and knowing your behavior was not good? The child was certain that a bad action would give Santa the reason to leave a lump of coal under the Christmas tree. So because of how you wanted presents under the tree, there would be Christmas cookies and milk on the table for Santa. And of course the child would never get caught in seeing Santa.

This picture book is easy to read and a preschooler will enjoy the simple words and the wonderful illustrations throughout the story. The preschooler can learn to read the story along with you and it will be a delight to add some creativity to encourage the child to read along with the adult. I think this book is an excellent story for the preschool age genre, the story is exciting and is just right for a storytelling family gathering on Christmas Eve night before the preschoolers are in bed. I would also suggest a family time activity in helping the preschooler bake the cookies and set out the milk for Santa, so the story can be brought to life. This story can be the beginning or ending of an exciting night.
