I like how The Gift Giver ties together the Christian meaning of Christmas and Santa Claus. I have always loved the image of Santa Claus and enjoy celebrating him with my children over the years. I enjoyed being reminded of the symbolism of gift giving and why we celebrate. It truly is a simplistic idea and one that our culture has run away with; loosing the pure meaning and celebration that is Christmas to a Christian. Consider sharing this beautifully illustrated book with your loved ones this Christmas season. The illustrations are timeless and classical. The Gift Giver is surely a book that will provide a wonderful reading and sharing experience for the entire family. Make it a part of your Christmas traditions this year. Available now on Amazon or directly through the book’s website (link provided below).

On Christmas Eve a boy stirs from sleep to find an old man, in the living room, dressed in red with a bag full of gifts. Excitement soon gives way to disappointment as he finds he has received fewer gifts than expected. The old man sees the young boy's protest and tells the story of his origins and his motives. As the boy becomes privy to this mystery, a question comes to his mind: is it by magic that the old man accomplishes his task, or is it something else... The lesson he learns will change the way he views Christmas forever! If you are a fan of The Polar Express, and T'was the Night Before Christmas, you will love The Gift Giver.
