Draw close to the fire, all you who believe in the spirit of Christmas, whether you call it Santa Claus, or simply good will to men; and listen to the story of Nicholas the Wandering Orphan who became Nicholas the Wood-carver, a lover of little children. Follow him through his first years as a lonely little boy, who had the knack of carving playthings for children; then as a young man, busy over the little toys; then as a prosperous, fat, rosy old man, who overcomes all sorts of difficulties in order to attain his ambition, a toy for every child in the village. Learn how he started to drive a beautiful sleigh drawn by prancing reindeer; why he first came down a chimney; how he filled the first stocking; where the first Christmas tree was decorated; and finally how he came to be known as "Saint Nicholas" and "Santa Claus."

From the Publisher:

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus by Julie Lane is also available on audiocassette, in a two-tape set. The story is read by Bill (Salty Sam) Everett. Music is provided by the Crane Bassoon Quartet. The tape runs for 2 hours, 40 minutes. Parents travelling with children especially enjoy taking the tapes along. Everyone enjoys the story! (Great for pre-holiday travel.)

If you are an elementary teacher, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus is a wonderful way to start a discussion of various holiday traditions with your students. A collection of ideas from teachers around the US and Canada, Ideas for the Classroom, is available, free of charge, from the publisher.
