My Review: 

 I adored A Beautiful Story: Jesus & St. Nick by Sarah French. I love how it tells the story of the birth of Jesus, as well as, the real story of Saint Nicholas. I found this book to be a precious read for children to learn the history of the reason for the season and how Santa Claus became to be. There are Bible verses and prayers included that teaches children. I thought it was just what the title says, A Beautiful Story. I believe it would be a perfect addition for the annual Christmas time reading from the youngest to the oldest of readers. I loved it.

A Beautiful Story: Jesus & St. Nick is beautifully illustrated by the talent artist Robert Sauber. I thought his vivid pictures were a wonderful addition to this book and a perfect way for it to continue to grab the littlest of readers attention. 

I am giving A Beautiful Story: Jesus & St. Nick a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who are between the ages of three and ten. I would love to read more books by the talented Sarah French in the future to find out what other beautiful stories she creates for her fans. 

I received a hard cover copy Sarah French’s of A Beautiful Story: Jesus & St. Nick from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
