Wonderful book for Christian children


By:
Review: When my granddaughter was born, my son and his wife hesitated to introduce Santa Claus because they feared that the child would be confused over the true meaning of Christmas. That child is now 11 and she loved this book which I gave her this year. I also included the Fontanini figurine shown on the book cover, as she has the Fontanini Creche.She was so pleased with both items. I would really recommend this for any child even before he can read himself. . It would be a wonderful pre-Christmas story to read every year.

A Great Book for Kids


By:
Review: This is a good book to make sure that children understand the reason for the season. It is so easy for Santa to take over at Christmas and for the true reason to get lost. This book does a great job of tying it all together. My only complaint was that in one page of the book, there is a reference to a child dying. I thought that concept was a bit harsh for my little ones, so we edit that one part while we're reading. Other than that, I think this is a really great, and sweet, book.

You CAN have it both ways!!!


By:
Review: I've come in contact with parents and grandparents who struggle with the concept of Santa Clause and the real reason for Christmas. A friend recommemded this book to me. I've shared it with many other parents and they were too very appreciative of how the "Santa story" could be reconciled positively with the birth of Christ.

A great story for families...


By:
Review: I bought this book after Christmas while it was on sale. I really wish we would have gotten it before. My daughter (3) loves this book! I have always struggled to find a way to 'fit' Santa and our religious belief's together and this did a great job! What a wonderful story that delights not only my daughter but myself as well. I never wanted to lose that cherished thought of Santa and the excitment it brought into my life, and now I have a more special way to share it with my daughter.

A priority for young Christian families


By:
Review: An excellent Christian source for bridging the gap between St. Nicholas, Santa and Jesus in a largely materialistic world. In addition to its loving message, it is also beautifully illustrated. There's not a better one out there.

Review: My Mom gave this book to my middle son for Christmas two years ago. He was too young to understand it then. However, we've since used it twice at our church's St. Nicholas Day celebration where our minister reads it to the kids. We've decided to get him his own copy so he has one to keep!

Santa book


By:
Review: My 8-year old granddaughter is between believing and not believing in Santa Claus. I've told her for years that I believe in Santa, but she just wasn't quite sure about the whole story. When I gave her this book, she read it and said, "Now I understand, Gramma." Made my whole Christmas extra special this year. Thank you.
