What I loved: This book modifies the poem to be more easily understood by modern children, but it maintains the rhyming and rhythmic tone that captures the reader's attention. The illustrations here are full of colors and beautifully done. There are so many fun details on each page that will give children plenty to admire. I also really loved that sister wants a skateboard (and the brother wants a toy car), and we see that Santa has brought them each something special later on. The mild changes to the poem only bring the delight to a new generation.
The book is great for reading aloud, with large, clear text and pages that are a little thicker than other picture books to make them easier to turn and more durable. This is a book that will charm new generations with the magic of Christmas night.
Final verdict: For people who want to share the poem of THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS with their young children, this is a fantastic option with beautiful illustrations and a modern take on the fun classic.
