Since it ?rst appeared in 1823 as “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” The Night Before Christmas has been a classic holiday story, read and enjoyed by children and adults during the holiday season.

This bright and vividly illustrated edition of Moore’s timeless poem is a must-have for any family during the holiday season, whether it is placed under the tree for Christmas Eve or given as a pre-holiday treat. Ages: 4-8.
