Dec 28, 2013AND NOW IS THE TIME OF YEAR I FLOAT OLD CHRISTMAS REVIEWS TO COUNTDOWN TO BING BONG BING BONG!!!
Jan 06, 2018This is one of my most treasured Christmas books to read over the holiday season, particularly on Christmas Eve. I believe most people already know the classic poem â€œTwas the Night Before Christmasâ€ by Clement C. Moore, and I just reviewed another vintage edition that we read every year, but this version is also grand. This picture book contains beautiful illustrations that are lifelike and enchanting. It's one to keep.

Nov 13, 2011At what age did you stop believing in Santa Claus? Last Christmas, I still had to buy something for my daughter and wrote â€œFrom: Santa Clausâ€ on the gift tag because she still believed in him. She was 16.
Dec 02, 2018This is a version of the classic poem illustrated by Jessie Smith in 1912. (I couldnâ€™t find a correct entry in Goodreads, this is the best I could do.) I rather enjoy the artwork and I recognize a few panels that companies use for Santa Claus. I havenâ€™t seen this one. Santa isnâ€™t all in red, but dark clothes with soot and ashes on him. The artwork reminds me of turn of the century coca-cola product art.
Dec 25, 2015Go ahead, read this aloud Christmas Eve to someone or someones. It's not fake news; my mommy swore every word is true, and I never knew her to tell a lie:
Dec 24, 2015Every year, in some fashion, I read this aloud to the kids. What has sold more copies, in more versions? This is one of the old classic illustrated versions, more for me than the kids, in a way, though we had five versions of it around the house this time. Everybody likes it, though this year the now eleven year old mimes some of the action that I describe, lightly making fun of it. He has this idea Santa no longer exists!
Mar 31, 2017It's a delightful poem for the Christmas. Poet depicted the scenes from night before Christmas to the arrival of Santa Clause. It's written in very easy way. Didn't want to read this but accidentally opened it and thought to read it.
Dec 24, 2016I have read this story every Christmas Eve for as long as I can remember, it's always been part of our Christmas traditions and it will always have a special place in my part because of that.
Nov 29, 2019Neo led us through this holiday classic that never fails to put me in the mood for Christmas. Perhaps it is the silence in the house or the stirring atop the roof, but I can never get enough of the story. When St. Nick calls on his reindeer to make a soft landing and he exits to deliver presents, all I can think of is the gleam in the eye of little children (and Neo) to see what might be left. With some challenging words for Neo to tackle, especially those not usually used any longer, he was Neo led us through this holiday classic that never fails to put me in the mood for Christmas.

With some challenging words for Neo to tackle, especially those not usually used any longer, he was able to decipher most of it and sped through the parts he knows well. Wonderfully illustrated and full of colour as well. ...more
Dec 14, 2017Just looking at this book every year makes me cry happy tears of nostalgia. Every Christmas Eve my father would read it to me before we put out the milk and cookies. My copy is worn and torn but brought out every year. I think this speaks to the power of books to help make some of our most cherished memories.
Dec 11, 2017When my kids were little they memorized every other line of this poem. I would say a line and they would do their line till the last line that we would all say together. Since then it has become a tradition for every Christmas. So when Mr. H, my brilliant grandson, came along I set about teaching it to him. But, he decided to learn the whole poem. So at three he began entertaining us by reciting it. I LOVE traditions!! When my kids were little they memorized every other line of this poem.

Nov 30, 2016This was a cute story that my students enjoyed. The illustrations were amazing! However, the vocabulary in the book was hard for my students to understand, so we had to have many discussions on what the book is saying.
Aug 26, 2012How many decades ago did I memorize this poem, "Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash...." Does any kid now hearing this know what a "sash" is, not to mention a chimney etc. "As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly...": now as we await the wet leaves--and yacht boating boots--of the Republicans at their national convention hall in Tampa, a full foot above sea level at least: has anyone ever seen DRY leaves flying before a hurricane?
Jun 14, 2008This is a very biased review since I know the illustrator personally and was a model for one of the elves that appear in the book. My very special kitty, Larry, is pictured in the Christmas stocking at the end too. In fact, Watson used all real people to model for Santa, the elves and the family in the story, and he set the book in Port Townsend, Wash. where he lives. The clocktower is our actual courthouse in town.

Nov 27, 2016We read this book as our Holiday tradition every Christmas Eve. It's one tradition that we have never overlooked.
Nov 29, 2018Short, yet cute, captivating story that depicts a surprising encounter with St. Nick on the night before Christmas.
Aug 01, 2018It wouldn't be Christmas without this wonderful book at our house.
Dec 07, 2018â€œThe moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow, gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below, when, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeerâ€.
Nov 12, 2008Darn it, I don't know how to post for different editions as this keeps coming up the same despite different illustrators. Here, then, are the three versions I've enjoyed this season with links so you can see them on Amazon.
Dec 20, 2017This is the most iconic of all popular Christmas books -- and for a reason. This is the first book that named the eight reindeer, and was responsible for the popular "vision" of what Santa Claus looks like today!
Dec 07, 2018I'm happy someone thought it was time for a beautiful new version of The Night Before Christmas. This lovely book is the result.
