Hanging Christmas stockings has become a holiday tradition. But where did that custom come from? It all began with a kind-hearted, God-loving man! Through charming couplets, author Crystal Bowman takes us back in time to the origins of the Christmas stocking tradition. Children and adults alike will smile with delight as they learn why and how this custom came about. Die-cut in the shape of a Christmas stocking, My Christmas Stocking helps put gift-giving in perspective. Parents, grandparents, and preschool teachers will find this lovely story a joy to read many times over.
What cute story..and what a great way to tell your little ones about Saint Nicholas. Its a board book so its great for the littlest on kiddos..
My 2 year old loved having it read to him, and looking at the pictures himself, and my older kiddos read it themselves and enjoyed it. I think this book is a great way to start off telling your kiddos about the real Saint Nicholas, mine already knew and they still enjoyed the book:)
