The Story of Santa Claus

Santa Claus - Joseph McCullough

I have always been interested in the story of Santa Claus, so when I saw this on NetGalley, I decided to give it a try. I really liked it. It's interesting, full of facts and stories - some I already knew, but others I didn't know or at least didn't know the full story on. I love the old-fashioned looking cover, and there are some pretty pictures used throughout the book. I also like that once we start discussing Santa, it becomes a little whimsical. This was a fun read, if you're interested in the history and religions behind what we see of Santa now, but I wouldn't suggest sitting down and reading the whole thing to a child. I would suggest sharing some of the information you read inside. (For Krampus lovers, there is a small moment about him and some other Christmas demons as well.)

 

Note: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
