More About the Author

Natasha Wing was born in Connecticut and now lives in Fort Collins, Colorado. After graduating from Arizona State University she then worked in advertising for a number of years. It wasn't until 1991 that she decided to write children's books. Luckily she sold her first book within six months and has been writing children's books and articles ever since. Some of her books have even ended up on bestseller lists, including the wildly popular The Night Before series.

"I'm curious about many things- people, holidays, underdogs, little known historic figures - and translate my excitement for a topic into books for kids to enjoy. Story ideas are popping into my head all the time, so you never know what my next book will be. But that's what's so fun about writing."

My three year old granddaughter was born on New Year's Eve, so this book really helped her to understand what all the "excitment" is about on her birthday! I love all the Natasha Wing books, but this one is my favorite!

Have been collecting the Night Before books by Natasha Wing, so far we have Halloween, Thanksgiving, and now New Years. This is a fantastic book, it gave my son a better understanding of what new years is and the celebration that occurs at the end of the year.

This book is excellent. My ESL students love it! They like the rhyming, colorful illustrations, and the ability to easily comprehend the story. All of her books are "Best practice Blue ribbon" I love watching my students read them to each other. They always want to take them home for rereading.

Want the perfect book to help ring in the New Year? Well look no further. This story is written in rhyme and includes you in this family's preparations to celebrate the happy event. They decorate their home, buy sparklers, streamers, and party hats, gorge on homemade cupcakes, and play games that the whole family can participate in and enjoy.

The little ones are allowed in on the festivities but do you think they can stay awake until that clock starts chiming in the new year? They start looking kind of droopy and tired as the evening progresses...will they make it?

This is a fun story for beginner readers and a winner as a read-aloud. The illustrations are bright and colourful with lots of detail and pizzaz. The illustrator captures the expressions of the family members perfectly, especially of the child who gets to eat three whole cupcakes! Heavenly. I am sure this is a book you will want to add to your holiday collection!

My daughter (3) loves her books and truthfully, I don't mind reading them all the time to her. Some parts are cute, ALTHOUGH, in the 4 books we have of hers, some parts are a little uncreative and it annoys me a little bit. :) But, we'll keep buying them!
