The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore Book Review

The Night Before Christmas: A Brick Story Hardcover
by Clement C. Moore (Author), Amanda Brack (Illustrator)

Book Description

Spread the Christmas cheer with this whimsical retelling of Clement C. Moore’s cherished poem, “A Visit from St. Nicholas.” This new edition of the classic features the text of Moore’s original poem, illustrated with beautifully detailed LEGO brick scenes and characters.

See the colorful stockings hung by the chimney in the fanciful brick house, and look on at the visions of dancing brick sugarplums. Turn the pages to reveal Saint Nicholas with his bundle of toys and his eight trusty reindeer, and watch as he magically slides down the chimney to bring presents to the good little girls and boys before shouting, “Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!” This treasured Christmas poem in brick will quickly become the highlight of your holiday storybooks and a great new tradition for the whole family!

My Review:
The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore is an awesome book for kids! The illustrations are so fun and match the words on the page perfectly. My kids absolutely love that The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore contains LEGO brick scenes. We love LEGOS in our house so anything LEGO is usually a hit but I have to say I love the tie in with Christmas because LEGOS are always on my kid's holiday wish lists. On each page there's a Christmas scene to remind kids of the upcoming holiday season. This is a terrific book to add to your child's holiday reading collection!

You can find The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore on AmazonBarnes and Noble and other bookstores.
