#Book #Review: The Night Before Christmas #Children

Summary from GoodReads: With over 600,000 copies sold, Jan Brett's New York Times bestselling edition of Clement Moore’s classic Christmas poem celebrates its tenth anniversary with a note from Jan and an exquisitely redesigned jacket with red foil trim, making this a delectable holiday treat.
A new generation of readers will find Jan’s visual interpretation of this favorite poem, set in a snowy New England village, both familiar, as St. Nick visits a Victorian family, and surprising, with Jan’s addition of two stowaway elves from the North Pole.

My Review: My kids love this book. We read it at least twice a week together the entire month of December. Even my teens grab their blankets and a cup of hot chocolate and cuddle around the tree to hear it being read. The illustrations in this version are absolutely wonderful. There's even a glitter type substance {I call it that because it doesn't come off like glitter does--so no mess} on certain pages to make the snow sparkle, ornaments sparkle, etc.

The quality of the book {which is something I rarely mention} is fantastic. The pages are thick and perfect for reading over and over.

This was a wonderful updated illustration on a wonderful classic.
