Lovely book, the illustrations kept my daughter occupied and intrigued for a long time. And of course the story is a delight. I recommend this book for anyone that has a child interested in reading or being read to that is a little young because they will stay engaged because of the wonderful illustrations. This is a keeper for our family!

A Victorian Delight!
The pictures in this version of the classic tale establish a Victorian American setting. The scenes are truly beautiful to behold. It is delightful!

So so childrens book about the Night Before Chirsmas. There were too many animals in the pictures, like ten or twenty animals per page sitting on Santas Lap, and on the couches and chairs. It left me with an icky feeling.

Jan Brett's illustrations are delightful and a beautiful background to Clement Moore's classic Christmas poem. There is a lot of detail for children to observe on each page.

This is a beautiful Jan Brett version of this picture book. Our children have so much fun peeking at the pictures in the margins to get a hint of what's coming up next in the story!

ISBN 0307637506 - This is my second review of a version of this poem. The other, ISBN 0785313648 "Twas the Night Before Christmas (Candy Cane Books), began with a sentence I'm going to copy and paste here: While there's no question that the original poem by Clement Moore is a five star piece of work, there are so many versions of this poem in print that any review has to be of the entire book, with more weight on the illustrations, the only difference between them. I suggest potential customers pay attention to which reviews apply to which book, as there's quite a difference in quality.

The classic poem, wherein the narrator hears noise on the lawn on Christmas Eve and, responding to it, sees Santa in his sleigh land on the roof, come down the chimney, etc. The narrator, the father of the family, watches Santa place gifts under the tree and, when done, hop in his sleigh and fly away.

Illustrator Cyndy Szekeres and Golden Books measure up to the standard set by Moore. Szekeres's family is one of mice, which always makes for some fun illustrations. The "wreath" on the family's door is one leaf and one holly berry; the parents' bed is a sardine can; Santa sits on a single die to review his list and the endtable is a thread spool while a large family photo has a locket for a frame. These little touches of whimsy are fun and cute. All ages love the poem, children in particular will love the mice and their adorable adapted furnishings.
