A Gift from St. Nicholas - St. Nicholas is more than just legend he was a real man who lived long ago and had a heart for giving gifts. Author Christine Bolley uses a letter-style format to tell the story of the real St. Nicholas. Artwork by Bruce Eagle, this book tells the story of St. Nicholas' life, his love for Jesus, and how gift-giving can show Christian love to our friends, family and neighbors. I wanted the boys to know the truth behind the fairy tale. I'm so happy I found this book.
