Sometimes, there are magical moments like Christmas time that inspires people to create something special and give it to their beloved ones. We chose this children’s book as one of our favorite Christmas stories. One of the reasons for this is the fact that the author wrote it as a holiday poem for his children as a Christmas gift.

Twas The Night Before Christmas

Author: Clement C. Moore

Twas The Night Before Christmas is a wonderful, classical holiday poem, written by Clement C. Moore. Turned into a magical Christmas tale, the poem starts in a New England village where villagers and their families get their Santa’s letters returned back to thier home addresses. No one knows why Santa didn’t accept thier letters, so children become very sad. One of the villagers creates a clock with a Christmas carol sang by the children, and plans to play the carol at midnight on Christmas Eve.

Right on time, the clock starts to sing, and chubby little St. Nick with his 8 reindeers flys into the village, starts landing on villagers’ roofs and journeys down thier chimneys. He makes everyone happy with the Christmas gifts and finishes his visit with greetings:

Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night

Our review

This is the Gold Medal Winner 2012 Moonbeam Children’s Book Award Best Holiday Book, and the 1st place winner for the Global International Best Christian Children’s Book. We absolutely love this colorful edition for young readers. We’d like to encourage parents and teachers to read this magical story during thier Christams holidays, as well as use it as a Christmas gift. The beautifully illustrated pages will delight your little ones as the rhyming poem will capture their interest and guide them through the magic of Christmas.

One of the reasons we love this new edition is that it’s becomeĀ child-friendly without loosing its enchanting, classical spirit with which was written over 100 years ago. With this child-friendly edition, the public health sector, parents, educators and grandparents welcomed healthier Santa’s habits (he stopped smoking after so many years). With editions like this, classical tales can live forever and adjust themselves for many future generations. We love that!

Hope you will enjoy this lovely story just as much as we did!
