Item description for Twas the Night Before: A Picture-Story of the Nativity by Rachel Olson, Arthur L. Zapel & Zapel...
Overview "'Twas the night before Christmas, and far above earth / The angels prepared to announce Jesus' birth." Clement Moore's beloved rhyme scheme forms the basis of this picture book for young children about the birth of Christ. The rhythm of the words is great for out-loud reading, and the richly-colored oil painting illustrations alone tell the story to nonreaders. All the familiar elements are there: the shepherds, the stable, the angels, the wise men. Reading it will become a family holiday tradition. An excellent gift book or addition to church libraries.
Publishers Description Rhymed text and illustrations describe the birth of Jesus, the visits of the shepherds and wise men, and the flight into Egypt, and briefly discuss the meaning of Christmas.
