    Comments about The Secrets of St. Nicholas:

    I come from an Asian country where Christmas is not quite commonly celebrated. I read this story book and learned the true spirit about Santa Claus, then I passed this book on to my daughter. I hope (if not exact this book) the story from this book keep her and her next generation happy for a long time.

      Comments about The Secrets of St. Nicholas:

      This book explains the true story of the Santa Claus legend. As such it should not be read to younger children who still believe! But for older children who know the truth, it's a terrific way to recapture the magic of Santa Claus, while learning more about the man behind the myth.
