Product Details

Most people know St. Nicholas as seen in the image of Santa Claus or as the saint who leaves a gift in early December but many do not know the stories and legends behind this saint. The book, The Legend of St. Nicholas, tells the story of St. Nicholas and tells of some the stories and legends which are told about him. St. Nicholas was particularly known for his concern about the poor. Stories are told that range from some that are unfamiliar like where he ended a famine by increasing the grain on a cargo ship to the familiar where he gave his inheritance to prevent a desperate father from selling his daughter into slavery.

The Legend of St. Nicholas was written by Anselm Grun, a Benedictine monk who has written over 300 books that have been published in over 30 languages. The illustrations in the book are simple but ethereal looking with the soft pastel hues and were done by Guiliano Ferri. Find out more about this humble saint whose actions of giving to others inspired our image of Santa Claus today. The book is a hardcover book with 26 pages for ages 4 to 8 years.
