We are counting the days to Christmas, I can’t believe it’s already next week, little man is really looking forward to it. As part of Parragon Book Buddy, we receive new children’s books on a regular basis, and this month we have received ‘The Night Before Christmas’. Reading this magical book is making little man even more excited.
The Night Before Christmas is a lovely festive Christmas Picture Book written by Clement C. Moore and illustrated by Henry Fisher. You can capture the thrill of a traditional Christmas with Clement Moore’s treasured seasonal rhymes. Brought to life with the warm and playful artwork of Henry Fisher, this magical story is full of character and humour.
Clement Moore’s The Night Before Christmas is one of the most treasured and loved seasonal rhymes of all time. As St. Nick and eight tiny reindeer descend through a brilliant night sky onto the roof of a Victorian house in a snowy New England village, the famous Christmas poem begins.
‘Twas the night before Christmas,
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even a mouse’.
The Night Before Christmas is a gorgeous book with bright and beautiful illustrations. Little man loved the sparkling book cover and the lovely pictures inside. He is into rhyming at the moment, so he really enjoyed the poem.
It is Christmas eve, daddy is awake and sees Santa and his reindeer flying past the window in his sleigh. Dad sees Santa coming down the chimney, delivering the Christmas presents, then off he goes.
‘He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight,
“Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight!”
