Do you wonder how to approach the Saint Nicholas/Santa Claus story with children in your life? The legend of Santa is a fun tradition, but children should also learn that the story surrounding Santa Claus is based on a real, historical figure named Nicholas, a Christian bishop known for his generosity.
This picture book presents a shortened, somewhat fictionalized version of the life of Saint Nicholas. Nicholas is introduced as a servant of God who reflected His love to others. The story touches on the ministry of Nicholas and his generous gift of a dowry to three young girls as a response to God's love in Jesus.
With museum-quality artwork and family-friendly language, this book helps children see that our own gift-giving is a grateful response to the sacrificial gift of God’s Son.
