The Legend of St. Nicholas

 “The Legend of St. Nicholas – A Story of Christmas Giving” was sent to me by Zonderkidz, a division of Zondervan Publishing.  It was free of charge, in exchange for my honest review.

“The Legend of St. Nicholas” is a Christian children’s picture book written by Dandi Daley Mackall.  Once again, Richard Cowdrey drew the magnificent illustrations…I love his drawing!!

In this book, Little Nick was going to the store to buy Christmas gifts for his brothers.  Instead he sees a baseball glove that he really wanted.  He picked it up, but happened to hear the store Santa telling the story of Saint Nicholas and how he gave to those less fortunate than himself.  After Santa’s story Nick was inspired and not only bought his brothers’ gifts, but spent his extra money to purchase gifts for the poor.

I really like how Ms. Mackall ends her stories with a child doing something good for others.  I would recommend this story to children and those reading to children.
