'Twas the Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore- OPTIONAL

Moore, Clement C. ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, BOARD BOOK. Flowerpot Press, 2013. $8.99.  This is an illustrated board book that goes along with the classic Christmas poem by Clement C. Moore. It follows the main character on Christmas Eve as he wakes up to see Santa pull up to his house to deliver gifts to his house. This is a great poem, but it is very long. This version has it word for word. The whole thing. I think that’s a little too much for a board book and most readers using a board book will be too young to appreciate it. I do like the artist rendition of Santa and the reindeer, but the rest of the illustrations aren’t anything spectacular. PRE-K- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
