Jan Brett Night Before Christmas Apr 6, 2008
I LOVE Jan Brett's books! I buy them anytime I see them whether on sale, old ones on this site as remainders, or new.. They make great gifts. I have a backup of many to give to children, particularly my granddaughters. The illustrations in this one are so beautiful it is really a keepsake to save as well as enjoy. Give it as a gift and you will make some child very happy and a parent happy,too.
Beautiful, large book Mar 29, 2008
Beautiful illustrations reprinted from over 40 sources. All illustrations are credited on last page. Book measures 9"X11.5" Only down side was that the price changes by the day. One day it's almost $11 another it's $8.97. But that's just the way this site works; something to be aware of. (It's worked in my favor often while shopping at midnight--price suddenly went down!)
Classic Jan 13, 2008
it's a classic, so of course you can't go wrong, but as far as the best one being out there... well, I'm sure there are much better illustrated ones out there than this one
It's Become a Tradition Dec 29, 2007
I bought this for my grandchildren last Christmas. The wording is traditional, and the illustrations are wonderful! This has become a part of the Christmas Eve tradition at my daughter's house.
This Book is Beautiful...! Dec 11, 2007
These illustrations are the best ever for The Night Before Christmas...Stunning even! A worthy heirloom Christmas Book. The illustrations cover both sides of the page for a large panoramic view seldom seen in other books...
