Reviews - What do our customers think?
very good book to help bring up the subject with your child  Dec 26, 2008
This book is pretty good to get for when you are ready to approach the subject of whether Santa is real or not with your children. It does mention Jesus and St. Nicholas and the spirit of giving. It is put in a caring, gentle way. I just wish it explained things a little more. The book could easily be a few pages longer to express certain thoughts just a bit further. The author could have elaborated more in a few areas. Then again, I know sometimes publishers give a page limit, which is too bad.

My daughter is in third grade and a few kids in class no longer believe in Santa (or tooth fairy, etc.). This actually started in second grade, but has gotten a little more attention this year. Luckily, the majority of kids in class DO still believe, so they outnumber the nay-sayers. But I am willing to bet this was my last Christmas with Santa being "real" in my household. So I have this book for when the time comes and my daughter seriously begins to question it, whether it happens after Christmas vacation when she returns to school (who knows if anyone spied their parents or whatnot this year on Christmas Eve). Or if the topic comes up next year.

I think I am going to get one or two more books to go with this one. I like the looks of The Legend of Saint Nicholas. Yes, it has some things hard to believe (like as a baby he stood up and prayed to God). But then again, I am not here to tell my daughter that no magic or miracles exist in the world. Just that there is not a real, living, breathing person of Santa Claus who brings her presents, and her and daddy, mommy and the cats stuff in our stockings. But that we grown-ups do it to carry on the legend of St. Nicholas. And how interesting it is that in many different countries and cultures around the world some sort of giving person/being exists in legends. And giving in material gifts also helps us to remember to give in non-material ways as well. And giving of material gifts of food to donate to shelters, and items for toys for tots, and clothes and coats we outgrow to give away to those who can use them also is helpful, and an important part of the season, and of life in general, all year long.

So I rate this book with 4 stars. My only complaint is wishing it had a little bit more lengthier discussion and detail in certain areas. But it's really good for bringing up the topic with your child. The author has a kind way of writing that doesn't make it seem harsh or as if we've been outright lying to our children about Santa. Just carrying on a fun, beautiful, giving tradition.
Don't ruin the magic!  Dec 28, 2002
This book is fine for older children who want the reality of how the Santa traditions came to be, but please please please do not use it with your young child. The magic that is Santa Claus is so easy for a young child to understand, and that magic can then be transferred to Jesus as the child gets older. In our home, no one is ever allowed to say that they do not believe in Santa. If they persist they are told that "Santa does not bring gifts to those who do not believe!" Ask anyone in our family from Great Gramma to the youngest and you will get the same answer -- "Of course he is real!" There is incredible magic for me, even now as a gramma, when I view the Christmas morning scene of logs tumbling from the fireplace, ashes on the floor, half-eaten cookies, and the soft glow of the Christmas tree on gifts that weren't there the night before. There is far too much of reality in the world for children nowadays. Please don't ruin this little bit of magic for your child!
Just read it out loud to your kids  Nov 21, 2001
I knew it was time to sit down with my son and tell him that Santa didn't really bring his Christmas presents, but I had no idea how to approach this subject. This book made it very easy for me, all I had to do was read it to him. The story was great, it answered all of my son's questions, and it makes parents look like heros. I'm very glad that my son knows the truth now. The pictures are really nice too.
This was a waste of money  Nov 17, 2001
I tried to explain santa to my child with this book and it resulted in my child throwing a fit as well as this book at my head. It competely shattered my child's veiw of Christmas as well as her spirit for the season.
Excellent book, sensitive to the needs of children  Feb 10, 1998
Mr. Barrington did an excellent job of helping youngsters to understand who Santa really was. He does this without distracting from the excitement of the season. I especially appreciated the emphasis on the birth of Jesus.
