Twas the Night Before Christmas

'Twas the Night Before Christmas' is a story poem that describes as the title states the night before Christmas and how Santa arrives and gives out the presents at one house. The poem is quite lyrical with the rhyming of the end words and very fun to read no matter how many times you have read this particular story. The pictures are vivid, well-detailed and just plain beautiful to look at no matter the season. It's hard to pick a favorite picture in this Clement Moore poem. If I had to pick a favorite or two it would be the opening illustration of the living room with the tree and the stocking hanging and then when the father throws open the sash and notices the new fallen snow. This is a must read.

    Great summary and review. Reminds me of my late father-in-law who could recite the poem beautifully from memory. And sometimes did at seasonal family gatherings.
