As Christmas time nears, so do the eager questions of young boys and girls. “Where did Saint Nicholas come from?” “How does he visit so many children in just one night?” “Why does he leave gifts for girls and boys?”
The Maiden Voyage of Kris Kringle is a continuation of the Nicholas Stories series, which is about a boy who had a very unselfish wish. His wish was granted and mankind was forever changed. In The Land Beyond Yon, Nicholas comes across a doll that he had made for a sick girl long ago. The story of the doll and its lovely owner will explain more of children’s questions. The doll Nicholas gave to the girl had changed her life, giving her comfort, strength, and a constant friend. Nicholas never realized how much of an impact that simple gesture had meant to one girl, but that soon would change.
The Nicholas Stories will lead your family on a heartwarming journey to a place where gifts of love explain the true meaning of Christmas.
