So when Ms. Holly asks the class to write their letters to Santa, Parker gets nervous. Why are all of his friends telling Santa how perfect they are? Santa knows if you've been bad or good... It's best to be honest. Right? Parker hands in his honest letter and hopes that Santa will understand. When Christmas morning arrives, Parker finds a big surprise under the tree—and a letter from Santa!
