The Night Before Christmas

by Clement Clarke Moore
Illustrator Jean Hirashima

Grosset & Dunlap | May 9, 2002 | Trade Paperback

The Night Before Christmas is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
As St. Nick and eight tiny reindeer descend through a brilliant night sky, the famous Christmas poem begins. The father narrates the words just as Clement Moore wrote them, and artist Jan Brett captures the spirit of the story in glorious illustrations. Visually she extends it for children who will delight in watching two mischievous stowaways from the North Pole enthusiastically exploring the sacks of gifts on the roof. St. Nick, inside the house, is unaware, until the toys spill down onto the lawn -- then he turns with a jerk, and sees them. Antique toys and exquisite ornaments frame the borders, in which the father, St.Nick, or the family cat and dog can be found watching the action. A unique and beautiful edition, which all the family will cherish for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing Robert Sabuda books are amazing. The main picture, as well as the side pages, is very intricate. I would highly recommend this book for older children or for younger children with grownup help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic keepsake Another Robert Sabuda book to add to your collection. He takes a well known classic and uses clever, detailed pop-ups to illustrate the story. Watch out for the two reindeers that jump out at you. As typical of Sabuda, he saves the best for the last page!
