Former Cleveland resident Brooke Griffin Petersen brought her recently published children's book "Santa's Sick" to the students of Ferron and Cleveland Elementaries this holiday season.

The book charms and teaches of how Christmas is a special time of year, but for only one reason, which is revealed in the book.

Brooke was inspired to write the book by her frustration of feeling that the true meaning of Christmas is being overlooked or forgotten.

She hopes that her book will help the children that read it always remember the true meaning of Christmas.

"Santa's Sick" is available at all major book stores or through Tate Publishing at
