The Night Before Christmas Paperback edition by Clement C. Moore
Clement C. Moore (1779-1863), an American scholar and poet, wrote a poem for his children in 1822 called A Visit From St. Nicholas, which would later become known as The Night Before Christmas. A friend submitted it to a local newspaper, The Troy Sentinel, where it was published on December 23, 1823. Moore's delightful verse detailing a visit from of Santa Claus and his eight flying reindeer has since become an international classic.
Now, Clement C. Moore's classic holiday poem is available in a 24-page board book. The rich, nighttime illustrations provide the perfect complement to the well-loved tale, evoking all the excitement and wonder of this special night. Full-color illustrations.
The classic Christmas poem is illustrated in a style little ones will love. This sweet update of a beloved tradition is sure to fill any child's eyes with wonder and their dreams with sugarplums. From the adorable reindeer pulling the sleigh to the almost-plush-looking Santa, the lighthearted style of Janet Samuel's illustrations will delight youngsters and their families. A special flocking treatment and glitter on the cover draws in the eye and will be fun for children to touch. Ages 2-5.
