Good Kids Book Jan 7, 2010
I thought this was very appropriate for children and a great way to bring St. Nicholas into thier lives.
Wonderful Christmas Book Jan 3, 2010
I used this book in my Charlotte Mason homeschool curriculum and loved it. The illustrations are wonderful and the story gives a seemingly good historical account of the real St. Nicholas.
St Nicholas is consise and inspirational! Dec 13, 2009
As a clergy person, I wasn't sure how to pursue a story telling circle at our Children's Christmas party at the church, but this book was a near perfect fit. The story is concise and easy for school-age listeners. I was delighted that the author included a inspiration connection to Christmas as a time of giving and God as the first giver. The illustrations are colorful and convey the story well to the children. My only reservation was the size of the book; a bit on the small side. A extra large edition would be great!
Nice book Dec 9, 2009
Not too long story which made it perfect for our 2 year old who does not like to stay still. We got the board book. The story is not very detailed but simple enough for younger children.
Well Done Jan 14, 2009
I shared this book with my family at Christmas this last year. It's for Children, but tells the Saint Nicholas story simply but well.
