Publisher's Description

Read the true story of Saint Nicholas of Myra, the man who gave what he had to help others because he was grateful for what God had given him. As a young boy, Nicholas learned the story of Jesus from his parents. When he grew up, he lived out his Christian faith in a unique and selfless way that we still celebrate today.

The stories we tell about Santa Claus say that he gives only to those who are ‘good’ or ‘nice’. The story of Nicholas reminds us that God gives based not on what we deserve but on his overflowing love for us.

A helpful parent resource section includes questions to explore with your children as you read Just Nicholas and make ‘the man before Santa’ part of your Christmas tradition.
