Anyway, this little book is yet another and I have to tell you right now that I love this little version.
"Twas the night before the night before Christmas,
with too much to do.
Our tree wasn't up yet,
and Mom had the flu."
Let me state right now that the art work in this one is comical in nature and an absolute delight. The artist, Mike Lester has captured the spirit of this little verse and the circumstances perfectly.
"Dad tied the tree to our car.
`This will just have to do.'
Mom nodded glumly
and sneezed, `Ah-ah0CHOOO!'
We dragged in our tree
through the front door.
It dropped half its needles
all over the floor."
I think one of the reasons that this book is so appealing is that there is much truth on each page and children are able to identify with it instantly. I dare say that the sort of situations addressed here are played out in numerous households, to one extent or another, throughout the country each year.
"When he plugged in the cord,
not a single light lit.
Did we have extra bulbs?
Yes...but none of them fit."
When all is finall ready, the family enters their home only to find that the family cat has pretty well destroyed tree, decorations and all.Read more ›
This was the most requested Christmas book, it had to be read at least five times a night - and the whole family had reading time at once (a rarity)! We laughed so much every time it was read.
Cleverly written, great illustration. This book is about everything that needs to be done before Christmas morning; how wrong things can go; and simply being together.
A new holiday classic for my family!
As a housewarming gift, I picked up a pair of Christmas books for my friends' children last year. This year, their mother again thanked me for "The Night Before the Night Before Christmas." It had become her kindergartener's and pre-schooler's favorite. In fact, it was the only story the pre-schooler wanted to hear.
For fun, I ordered myself a copy. It is now my favorite too. Following the cadences of "The Night Before Christmas," readers are invited along to witness a typical, loving family's Christmas challenges. Page after page of endearing illustrations will enchant readers of all ages. Not even the most dedicated Grinch can resist.
Don't wait another year to pick up this great story.
This one is simple to read, rhymes and keeps my daughter's attention.
It is a great reminder for adults that the month is crazy hectic, but don't forget the reason we do it all.
