    This is the first time I've read this, since I was a kid, and it's just as good as ever.

    I read this with my daughter at a Night Before Christmas function at her school. It was an enjoyable time reading to five other children as well. This is the classic tale that I'm sure anyone who celebrates Christmas has heard. The illustrations are nice, and the poetry is lovely. While reading this it's nice to curl up with your child and share a nice mug of hot chocolate. Cheers and Happy Holiday Readings!

    I try to read this every year as it never fails to return me to my 5-year-old self, filled with excitement over the great and powerful Santa's impending visit. The catchy rhythm and rhyme of this delightful poem is contagious. I used to repeat it often as a child until the first lines were branded into my brain:
    ''Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
    Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.'

    It always leaves me with a warm and satisfied glow as I read the last words:

    "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

    My Christmas Fave!
    I listened to the ambience & sound effects whilst reading this book, from the app 'Booktrack'. The app is great. It takes how fast you turn the page to time when you hear the effects. It's really great and adds to the whole reading experience.

    1/1/2000 I think it most unlikely that Clement Clarke Moore wrote the original poem, although I do understand why he continues to be credited. And I understand why the title used is incorrect, but common. But there's some editing of the text, and that really annoys me. I do think that Brett's pictures are lovely and amusing, and that's why I read the book every year, and then put it away with the other holiday books.

    The Possum was feeling the spirit last night, and also, couldn't decide what big book she wanted me to start next. So, she broke out the Jan Brett copy of the poem attributed to Moore, from among our numerous versions. However, the Brett version says "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Christmas", so it feels fake to her.

    On the other hand, Brett's illustrations are always fun, with lots going on to look at.

    It's Jan Brett, what can I say?

    A Christmas classic that almost all children are familiar with. It is the night before Christmas and everything is closed, people are sleeping waiting for the arrival of Saint Nicholas. As a child I always loved Christmas books, the holiday cheer, the excitement, and the love- therefore I know in the classroom students will get antsy around the holidays. This would be a great book to read around Christmas, not only for fun, but for connecting it with the poetry and the rhymes that the book is all about. The acrylic illustrations are just beautiful and are sure the keep the readers attention.

    The book tells the story of Christmas Eve and how Santa creeps very quietly to deliver presents. The man in the story says that he hears him and he sees him fly away calling out his raindeer and telling everyone Merry Christmas!The story is a classic and is something I read to my family every year. The colors and pictures are very detailed and hopefully this will be a book I can pass down to my daughter.Children try and hold onto the fantasy of Santa Claus as long as possible and this book is very good at holding their spirits just a little longer.When reading this story it would be beneficial to really get the kids into the book. Read a little softer than normal and show excitement at the right places. If you really put your beliefs in the book you can really hold a child's hope just a little longer.

    Genre: PoetryCritique of Genre: This is a wonderful example of poetry because it flows nicely with a lot of rhyming words such as, nose and rose or foot and soot. You can get a rhythm going from the start and it continues to flow right through to the end. Media: acrylic

    Wonderful illustrations paired with the classic poem.
