Books my family reads about St. Nicholas/Santa Claus

December 13, 2012

I was at a MOPS meeting this morning where we were talking about Christmas traditions we have. One of my family’s favorite things is reading our HUGE collection of Christmas books. This year we’re working in the idea of St. Nicholas, the 4th Century saint who is the basis for our American idea of Santa Claus. Here are the three books we’re reading, all of which come highly recommended:

Santa, Are You for Real?, by Harold Myra

(Available on Amazon in the form of a board book; hardcover and paperback are sold out. I bought mine early in the season.)

The Legend of St. Nicholas: A Story of Christmas Giving, by Dandy Daley Mackall

The Secret of St. Nicholas, by Ellen Nibali

Here’s where I posted about purchasing this book at the Foothills Fall Festival. It’s also available on the author’s website or Amazon.

And, of course, the concept of St. Nicholas is covered in the Christmas edition of the brilliant What’s in the Bible series, called Why Do We Call It Christmas?

If you’re ordering from their site you can use code 30DECEMBER for 30% off $30 or more, plus free shipping.

If you have other great books or movies to recommend, I’d love to hear about them!
