When Jesus is born, Santa sees the star at the North Pole and travels to see the baby. Since he is a toymaker, he brings his bag of toys - and offers them to the Christ Child, and then to all the people of the town. His birthday gift to Jesus is a promise to bring gifts to all good boys and girls each year on the Christ Child's birthday.
Sherrill gives an overview of the book:
They flew through the air, Santa Claus and his sleigh,
And arrived at the manger where the holy Child lay.
And kneeling before Him, with a sack full of toys,
He offered his heart to this dearest of boys.
He leaned toward the Christ Child and blew Him a kiss
And promised to Jesus what would be his gift:
Each year on Christ's birthday, he'd deliver his toys
To all children everywhere, good girls and boys...
