The Legend of St. Nicholas Book Review





Book Description

In The Legend of St. Nicholas, the new artwork, created by Marley and Me illustrator, Richard Cowdrey, captivates audiences and tells the story of a young man named Nicholas, who was moved by the plight of the poor and needy. Nicholas spent his life secretly helping the poor all over the world, giving gifts on Christmas Eve to remind people of the greatest Gift of all, Jesus Christ. This gentle Christmas book introduces the original St. Nicholas and offers inspiration for readers to become cheerful givers themselves. The final pages in the book include fun Father Christmas traditions in other lands.

My Review

This is a fun Christmas book that tells the story of St. Nicholas, a young man who wanted to give. The book is mainly about a little boy who goes shopping with his dad (his dad just left him at the store to wander on his own which I didn't really appreciate) and discovers Santa telling the story of St. Nicholas. It's a great example on how great it is to give to others in need and a good lesson for kids. 
The illustrations are beautifully done and I can't wait to share this book with the little ones in my life! I love giving and I hope they grow up to understand the importance of giving to others. 

"I received this book from BookLook for free in exchange for an honest review."
