In the Nick of Time Too is a sweet and uplifting story that teaches the reader to approach life with positivity and acceptance.


Nick and Cooper are buddies who experience more than they imagined on Christmas Eve. After a fun night at Nick’s open house Christmas Eve party, Cooper is surprised by a visitor entering the house through the chimney. But he doesn’t think it’s Santa because the man in a red suit and black boots is black.


I love the bond these boys share. They accept each other’s differences and are open to learning about each other. And just as in the first book (In the Nick of Time) the story closes with a thoughtful letter from Saint Nick himself, encouraging them to make the world better each day.


This story is about diversity, friendship, and understanding, and shows how hope and love are meant for everyone. A sweet and uplifting story with a strong message.


First Line: Nick and Cooper are best friends.
