Product Description

Here is the story of the historical Saint Nicholas, who was a servant of God. Through him, God's 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 God's 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 God's Son. Recommended for ages 5 and up, 32 pages.

Publisher's Description

His true story became today's legend of Santa Claus. He may be known as Santa Claus today, but his real name was Nicholas. His true story became today's legend of Santa Claus. A Christian bishop, Nicholas's generosity was a faith-filled response to God's own gift--His only Son, Jesus Christ. With Saint Nicholas, parents, teachers, and grandparents can teach children of all ages that Christmas is a time to celebrate that God showers His love upon them through Christ and that gift giving is in grateful response to that love.

Publisher's Weekly

Lacking both the crisp style and substance of Demi's thorough introduction to the saint (see above), Stiegemeyer's (Thanksgiving, noted above) effort oversimplifies its subject. Here the author narrows the biographical focus to one of Nicholas's legendary good deeds (he secretly leaves money for a needy local family). Much of the text whips up an overly excited, teacherly tone ("However, God is even more generous and loving still!") and the most solid information is contained in an author's note that begins "Dear Grown-up." The white-bearded Nicholas's face, caught in moments of compassion and reverence, dominates many of Ellison's (King of the Stable) realistic and technically proficient paintings. Ages 5-up. (July) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
