Clement C Moore (1779-1863) is widely regarded as the very poet of Christmas Eve. Much of the way we have come to celebrate December 24th is based on his portrayal of a jolly Santa, who along with his team of reindeer brings happiness to children and joy to the world.
C's Review- I love this book because it ls when Santa comes. The
pictures are very pretty and how a lot of colors. Santa looks kind
of thin though. We can get this copy of the book right mom? (mom's
note, OF COURSE) It's really fun at Christmas time to unwrap a new
book each day, we did that last year*. You should all get this book
and wrap it up for your kids.
Mom's Review- A new version of one of my favorite books ever! Can I tell a fun story? The first year my husband and I were engaged we were in a long distance relationship. I emailed this to him on Christmas Eve and when he called me that night he read it to me on the phone right before I drifted off to sleep! Our household currently owns 5 versions of this book and we will for sure be getting this one. I love the more modern look to it without going over board. As you saw above in the blurb, gone is the smoking, and fur of endangered animals. But even without some pieces you still have the true classic story some great new looks to graphics and the fun of the Night Before Christmas.
Twas The Night Before Christmas is the best known poem in the English language. If someone gave us its first line, most of us could recite the second line automatically.
