We usually get a few families every year asking for books that tell the story of St. Nicholas. This year I was pleased to see a new book about him:
The Legend of Saint Nicholas by Anselm Grün
The same author and illustrator published a picture book about Jesus earlier this year that got good reviews. The books were originally published in Germany and are now available in English translations in the United States.
Zonderkidz has also re-released
The Legend of St. Nicholas: A Story of Christmas Giving by Dandi Daley Mackall
At the end of the story, you can read about St. Nicholas traditions around the world.
