Jan Brett's The Night Before Christmas

Renowned author and illustrator Jan Brett takes on Clement Moore's classic poem in her book The Night Before Christmas. Quick Synopsis (from the publisher): A new generation of readers will find Jan's visual interpretation of this favorite poem, set in a snowy New England village, both familiar, as St. Nick visits a Victorian family, and surprising, with Jan's addition of two stowaway elves from the North Pole. Grades: Pre-K–5
