On Christmas Eve (and the day before our countdown wraps up), what book could possibly be more fitting than an illustrated rendition of Clement Moore's classic poem? And while there are many wonderful versions of this poem as a picture book, I was once again drawn to Jan Brett's detailed and cheery illustrations in The Night Before Christmas.

This celebration of Santa's middle-of-the-night visit begins in a subdued manner but quickly becomes quite jubilant in its depictions of Christmas candy, tree ornaments, happy elves, abundant presents, rambunctious reindeer, and of course Saint Nick himself. With Christmas reds and dark blue sky standing out against winter whites, children are sure to appreciate all these visuals when perparing for a fitful night's sleep before Christmas!
