HOUSTON, Nov. 14 /Christian Newswire/ -- For many children, Christmas has come to mean a time to collect the latest video game machine or prettiest doll. However, this year, a remarkable story offers parents an opportunity to remind children of the true reason for the season.

"Jesus Was Here," by Brian Simmons, a former police officer, is available ($9.95) at www.jesuswashere.com and www.amazon.com.

“I was behind the wheel of my patrol car when I had the idea for this story. I was thinking about how many of us have forgotten why Christmas exists. The next thing I knew, I pulled over and I just started writing,” said Simmons.

The result is an engaging tale of a little girl’s once-in-a-lifetime experience during the wee hours of Christmas morning.

“The reaction people have when they read the story has always amazed me. There just seems to be something about it that they identify with,” Simmons said. “I think it has a message that a lot of people are looking for, particularly around this time of year.”

Simmons, a father, believes the book ideal for parents to read to their children. Children will be drawn into the colorful illustrations and the text is also simple enough for young readers who want to turn the pages on their own.

"Jesus Was Here" is available at www.jesuswashere.com.  The cost is $9.95 plus shipping and handling. The website also contains an excerpt from the book and additional information about the story and the author.

Note to editors: Simmons is available for interviews. Images and review copies also available.
