Book Review: Santa's Secret Story

Santa's Secret Story
by Cornelia Mary Bilinsky
Illustrated by Candace Camling

I have to say this is a great pic for a Christmas book.

It addresses the "issue of Santa" carefully. It does not say "Santa is real", but it brings the reader to learn the story of Saint Nicholas.

Before the story there is a beautiful Prayer to Saint Nicholas and after the story there is a brief biography of his life.

I "field tested" this story with my 4 children (ages 4-9) and they said they, "Loved it". Their favorite part was finding out "Santa's Secret". I also tried it on my 2nd grade catechism class and they enjoyed it as well. Win, win everywhere.

Again, a good story. Solid dialogue, easy for a child to understand, and not cheesy.

Rating:  (out of 5)
