The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore


 Angela Barrett creates a nostalgic, snow-covered world in her magical new version of the Christmas Eve.  This book is a delight.  This magical, snow-covered version captures all the excitement of the countdown to the big day.  The stillness and quiet sense of anticipation in her illustrations make this a particularly atmospheric and memorable telling.
I wasn't feeling well on New Year's Eve so I went to bed early and looked at my lovely  copy of The Night Before Christmas with my Mum who read the poem aloud to me. It made me feel a lot better. xx
