Reviews - What do customers think about Giftbringer : The Story of Young St. Nicholas?
Giftbringer is a tresure for children of all ages Nov 2, 2007
I just finished reading Giftbringer and it left me with a feeling of "Wow! I want more!" Every legendary figure in our own mythos begins in historical fact somewhere and throughout the ages the story keeps getting more embellished down the centuries, so I see no reason why the story of Father Christmas should be any different. Frederick Wiegand has blended that historical fact with his own imagination.
As someone who has read both Harry Potter and Giftbringer I can say that Mr. Wiegand's imagination has proved just as insightful as J.K. Rowling has with Harry Potter, except no witchcraft, so if you didn't want your children reading about Hogwarts then this is the perfect alternative. The characters are just as rich and believable and you are drawn to a time long ago but only an ocean and sea away.
If, like myself, Christmas is your favorite time of year then Giftbringer is a must in your library right next to A Christmas Carol because his book allows for children of all ages who have forgotten to again become both enraptured with the Christmas Spirit and to be more fully aware of our own individual giving nature. This nature, bestowed upon us by the force of creation reminds us of the responsibility to use this gift wisely, which, in turn, leads us to then to a deeper understanding of the miracle this holiday offers us every year and to practice that same miracle more often in our daily lives by enriching the spiritual being of everyone we come into contact with in our daily lives.
In today's, unfortunately, politically correct climate Christmas has become both a nine letter word and a commercial lunacy; however, if you only buy one more book this year make it Giftbringer and allow this wonderful story to take you on a journey of joy you so richly deserve but remember to share that same joy with your posterity so that they will never forget what the spirit of Christmas really means.
