I read this book aloud to my wife and Baby A. This was a fun book to read about the legend of Nicholas, the first stocking, the first Christmas tree, etc. I look forward to read this book again when my son or daughter is a little tot!

I read this book at Christmas time every year, and have since I was a kid. It's a really enjoyable, sweet book. :)

This book is such a wonderful story of the meaning of gifting. It is one I plan to read to my grandchildren or my surrogate grandchildren!
