The Night Before Christmas

Moses continues in the tradition of folk painter Grandma Moses with his rendition of the poem. In the preface, he shares childhood memories about his family's personal copy of the poem that she illustrated. Cozy and quaint oil paintings reflect the quiet beauty of 1800 rural New England. Playful details such as finding the same mouse throughout the book will be fun for children to explore and share. Full spreads interspersed between the verses give striking panoramic views of the sleeping town and the old-fashioned home. The artist's style, echoing the primitive style of his famous great-grandmother, lends itself well to this very traditional version of the Christmas classic. Intended as a gift book, it includes a three-dimensional cardboard cut-out tree ornament of Santa in his sleigh.–Maureen Wade, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
