For many families, the holidays are a time to celebrate traditions. But for one Westfield family, their holiday custom has inspired a children’s book series!

Amanda Hauser is a teacher and mother of eight who has now written three Impish the Elf books. She says Impish came in to her family’s lives as a way to keep the magic of the holidays present.

Hauser spoke to Angela Ganote during Angela Answers about how Impish can create a lasting tradition for any family.
