The Legend of St. Nicholas--A story of Christmas giving

Nick sets out to buy his siblings a present, holding back just a little for himself, just in case. But as he begins his shopping, he is captivated by a story the store Santa Claus is telling a group of children. The story of St. Nicholas. When he is done with his story, Nick has a changed point of view. Setting off once again to shop, he feels he has discovered the true meaning of Christmas. This book is beautifully illustrated. The pictures are vibrant and cheery. Very well done in that aspect. The story however was lacking a little in my opinion. I think even for the age it is aimed at, it could have gone into more detail and depth of the real St. Nicholas character. Overall, i know my kids will like this book, merely because its a holiday book, but its nothing to write home about unfortunately. i received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
