The Night Before Christmas by Clement C Moore, illustrated by Barbara Reid

While this is a classic tale, this edition has some extra special artwork that looks like 3-D!

Albert Whitman & Company sent me a copy of this book to look over (thank you).  It has been published and it's lovely.  Check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Ms. Reid is not an illustrator I've met before, but I will be watching for her work in the future.  She does whimsical illustrations that are very detailed and totally unique.  She uses Plasticine to create depth and it's really something to see.

I love this rhyme and think it's an excellent Christmas Eve read.  Why not get a copy of this lusciously illustrated edition and make it a new tradition in your home?  You're also allowed to get a copy and save in your personal Christmas books, I won't tell.
