Could Henry Ford have taken his idea for an automobile assembly line from the elves at the North Pole? Maybe so! Set just before Christmas in 1908, this charming tale finds Henry Ford puzzling over a way to make his Model T affordable for the average family. His little son, Edsel, suggests that Papa write to Santa for advice. The story not only illustrates that children can teach adults how to dream, but it also provides an author’s note with factual information about Henry Ford and the Model T.
