The legend of Father Christmas-Santa Claus-has its roots in history. Nicholas was a pastor just 300 years after Jesus walked the earth. Tales of his generosity, a response to the gifts all receive through Jesus, were widespread. His kindness and care are modeled everytime someone gives a gift out of love.

My son needed this book to do a saint report for school. It was easy to read & understand. It conveyed the story well, telling of how St. Nicholas came to be & the tradition that continues today. A nice story for all to enjoy.
This is a great book to explain St. Nicholas to children. How people came up with having Santa at Christmas time each year. It also has the simple answer of why we give presents at Christmas time which was great for my 3 year old who asks "Why".
