Great for young kids
5 stars By Angelo, Jun 25 2018
Great book for young children who believe in Santa.
It was a nice link to acknowledge the child's interest in Santa at Christmas time, but bring religion in too.

Best Children's Christmas story
5 stars By Fraya, Dec 04 2017
It's great to see that Santa is being recognised as an individual and not some kind of perfect being. Santa was inspired by a Christian man, St Nicholas, thereby Santa came from Christian origins inspired by a real person. How the world has turned far away from Christianity, yet such beautiful little stories can bring it all back, and more. It is the best children's story I have ever read that the children can easily relate to, and a story that points to Jesus.

The Real Christmas
5 stars By Miranda, Dec 02 2017
A beautiful children's book that captures a little ones attention with stunning illustrations and an easy to read, flowing, rhythmical story line. But more importantly a fabulous message that paints Santa as a fictional character who does charitable deeds in the spirit of Christmas, but who is just another frail, human being needing salvation. 
A lovely gospel message I hope children everywhere will get the opportunity to understand.

Teaching the true meaning of the gospel within today's traditions
5 stars By Alison, Dec 01 2017
I loved this book that I ordered more. In today's society there is no way avoiding Santa (who was based on a real historical figure). He is a part of this world's Christmas. Instead of fighting this, let us use it to introduce the gospel in a non threatening way. The pictures are beautiful. I would highly recommend this book, especially as a gift to friends or family with young children. Well done Simon. You are planting seeds of the gospel in formative minds using a familiar fictional charater to bring truth into the homes of many. Thank you!

A great resource and fun to read
5 stars By Rebecca, Dec 01 2017
I've loved reading Simon's book to my 3yo daughter this year.  I was thinking about how to help her understand what people think about Santa and how that's so different to what we believe about Jesus. This book helped her grasp the huge differences between the two, and how much more exciting and wonderful it is that Jesus loves us even though we're not always good. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to think about how to talk to kids about Santa without it becoming the focus of Christmas.
