Presbytera Joanne Palko says...
What a beautiful and inspiring book for young children as it explains the joy of St. Nicholas and Santa Claus! Rachel was told that Santa lives in Heaven and was worried that he would no longer bring presents. That night in a dream, she was escorted by her Guardian Angel to meet St. Nicholas. The saint explained that he shares the love of God by doing good and you can give your gifts in secret. All his life St. Nicholas was known for his wonderful works, especially for children. Author, Cornelia Bilinsky, skillfully weaves the magic of Santa Claus and St. Nicholas into a loving story for children of all ages. The illustrator, Candace Camling helps to bring the story to life with her colorful illustrations. This book is perfect for little ones who are anxious for Santas visit and yet need to understand the history of St. Nicholas and the love he brings.

Jen Luciani says...
A wonderful story that connects Saint Nicholas, Santa Claus and the spirit of giving. I loved reading this story to my children (ages 7, 5 & 3) and helping them to understand and appreciate the saint behind Santa Claus and the meaning of giving in secret. While reading, my one son exclaimed "Santa is actually a saint?!" My children enjoyed the colourful illustrations and I found them to complement the story beautifully. This story has easily become a favourite in our household and will be read again and again during the Christmas season.
