This evening our bedtime story was The Night Before Christmas, a little early perhaps, but I’m sure we’ll be reading it again many times right up to Christmas Eve. We have been talking about St Nicholas Day, which is tomorrow, so it seemed a good choice to read tonight.
The Night Before Christmas, Clement C. Moore, paperback, £6.99, Parragon
The famous poem by Clement C. Moore is accompanied by warm and playful illustrations which the children loved, especially the glittery cover. We read it first while Owl was out at Cubs, and the three younger children drew some pictures. When we got home from collecting Owl, they added glitter to their pictures, and then daddy read the poem again to all the children before they went to bed.
We were sent a copy of this book to review.
