About This Book:

A beautifully illustrated, unique gift edition of the beloved Christmas classic—wind up an actual music box embedded in the book and play “Deck the Halls” as you celebrate the season

Bring the spirit of Christmas into your home with this unique sound book, which incorporates a windup music mechanism that sounds just like a musical jewelry box. Simply turn the crank and let the nostalgic carol “Deck the Halls” set the scene as you settle down to share Clement C. Moore’s classic story ’Twas Night Before Christmas. The holidays never sounded so magical.

The holiday favorite ‘TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS has joined up with the melody of DECK THE HALLS for a festive Christmas read unlike anything I’ve read before. This is a classic story and a popular one within our household, but to have the addition of the “Deck the Halls” tune makes it so much more magical. My daughter loves winding it up as we cuddle together for the story.

Like always, the flow of the words is smooth and they roll right off your tongue, which makes it easier to read aloud. The illustrations are soft and would make this a great Christmas bedtime story, especially with the melody to lull the reader to sleep. The book is rather thick from the music box, but it’s extremely light.

Final Verdict: This combination is one that I would recommend to those looking for a little more holiday spirit. The added bonus of the music succeeds in wholly entrancing the reader. Personally, it’ll be a Christmas Eve tradition with my daughter and I love seeing the smile on her face as she winds the box.
