Reviews - What do customers think about The Night Before Christmas, The (Wee Books for Wee Folk)?
Nice Book! Jan 14, 2009
Very good book. I love Christmas and everything about it and this book added to that. The art surrounding this holiday classic is fantastic. It is a great purchase for a child or a child at heart. It is on my book shelf with all the other literary classics.
Magical Jan 4, 2009
So neat to find a book that captures actual photos of santa from the victorian era.
Highly recommend it.
beautiful edition Dec 23, 2008
Bought a copy for each of the grandkids to have for Christmas Eve. Inexpensive but has wonderful illustrations.
Photographs, not illustrations!!! Dec 17, 2008
I am an elementary school librarian, and each year I read this book to my 4th graders. It reinforces the belief in Santa Claus for those students who are questioning the exsistence of Santa. It also makes those who no longer believe question their choice. The photographs are incredible, and the opening letter from the illustrator to the reader is what captures my students before I begin to read the classic poem and show the pictures. I recommend this book to any parent who encourages fantasy and "believing with the heart what the eyes cannot see" within their children. Childhood is short, but this book may help prolong Christmas for many.
T. Tudor's illustrations are overlayed with frames...cutting out details Dec 12, 2008
I was very disappointed with this edition. The publisher overlayed Tasha Tudor's beautiful illustrations with frames that cut out a lot of fun details, like the little mousy apartment below floor level. I hope that whichever publishing house has the rights to this book will go back to the original format in future prints.
