I have to admit after searching years for a book that would help me reconcile the concept of Santa Claus with the birth of the Christ Child, "A Special Place for Santa" was a gift from Heaven.
Imagine an author being able to combine the life of St. Nicholas and the birth of the Christ Child in a way that both historical figures were honored.
I cannot say how disappointed I was when I loaned out my copy of this great book to a friend and never had it returned. I was even more disappointed, after losing the book, to find out that the book was no longer in print.
I am continuing my search for this book as I wish to use it in the future. I believe that the book and its content dealing with both the life of St. Nicholas and how that life relates to the life of Christ is an invaluable teaching tool for all ages of folks, both young and old.
I thank Ms. Pieper for writing such a wonderful book.
