Many parents and teachers struggle with how to approach the Saint
Nicholas/Santa Claus dilemma. Many deal with this by telling children
that the legends surrounding Santa Claus are based on a real, historical
figure named Nicholas, a Christian bishop known for his generosity.
This board book presents a shortened, somewhat fictionalized
version of the life of Saint Nicholas, explaining that Nicholas was a
servant of God and that, through him, Gods love was reflected 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. And it brings application to our own lives as we, too, respond
with grateful hearts to Gods great gift of love to us.
Combining museum-quality artwork and family friendly language,
this book clearly articulates how God showered His love upon us through
Christ and helps children see that our own gift-giving is a grateful
response to the sacrificial gift of Gods Son.
