History and Christmas

I really enjoyed this story. It's entertaining for both young and old and has just enough history to make it interesting and keep the book going. I would highly recommend this for a family trip to the grandparents or where ever the family is driving for Christmas. The narrator is top notch and fit very nicely into my concept of what Santa should sound like...and who knew Santa would be so touchy about his weight? :-) And as for Atilla - I believed it - salvation at Christmas time.

Excellent to listen to! Loved it!

If you don't believe in Santa, don't purchase this audio. This is not a book for the cynics. It's a book for the innocent and childlike at heart.

However, if you believe in the magic of Christmas and are still a child at heart, you must listen to this book. The narrator is terrific! He sounds just like Santa should sound like. The story also takes you on a historical ride through the ages. Excellent! I would love to read this aloud to my students (if the school district would allow it....)
