Customer Reviews For "The Legend of St. Nicholas"Write Your Own Review
This is a beautiful book for children explaining why we have the legend of Santa at Christmas time. It is a tool for parents trying to explain why everyone talks about Santa when Christmas is about Jesus, as it explains the idea of giving gifts for the joy of being able to give to others without expecting anything in return, with Nicholas being a child in the story, (not a big fat man with a beard and reindeer.) I particularly liked how the book was specific in mentioning that Jesus is the greatest gift of all, and that is why we give gifts to others at Christmas, it does a great job of bringing the gospel into the story in this way. I recommend this book as an addition to the Christmas book supply, as it nicely reflects another aspect of what Christmas is about which you may not get as strongly in a nativity book.
