Very sweet book. Bought two years ago, and my 4 year old has wanted to read it twice this week at bed time (we read Christmas, Advent, Santa, etc. books during December). It helps point kids to Jesus, amidst the craziness of commercial Christmas. Santa is mentioned, but as a symbol of generosity, as St. Nicholas originally was. I have several books by this author, and am I big fan of her ability to relate to children.
