Thank you to NetGalley and InterVarsity Press for my copy of Saint Nicholas the Giftgiver by Ned Bustard in exchange for an honest review. It publishes October 12, 2021. This was such a treat of a read aloud to share with my family. I didn't know much about St. Nicholas before reading this, so it was nice to learn a little. The flow of the story was nice and a joy to read. I think any family that celebrates Christmas would enjoy adding this to their holiday library!

Every generous act of giving, with every gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of Lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. James 1:17 The true story of St. Nicholas told in the cadence of Jolly Old St. Nicholas. How he became to be the gift giver and how his faith led him to Sainthood. The illustrations are colorful and the poetic life of St. Nicholas is inspiring for all ages. A special thank you to InterVarsity Press and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.

A wonderful account of the life of Saint Nicholas and how he began gift giving in secret. Colorful illustrations told in a lyrical rhyme. A very special book to read during the holiday season. I highly recommend to kids of all ages. Thanks to #netgalley for the advanced reader copy. I loved it.
