About the Book

The Night before Christmas: A Children’s Christmas Poem about the Birth of Jesus might sound familiar and yet new and fresh at the same time. This poem tells the story from the Bible about the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ, and uses rhythm and rhyme in ways that draw their inspiration from Clement Clark Moore’s familiar telling of the Christmas Eve visit from St. Nicholas. Pairing eye-catching illustrations with the scenes in this beloved story brings to life the enduring Biblical account of Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem, the birth of the Christ Child, the announcement by the angels, the shepherds’ visit to the stable, and the call to tell the story to others. The reading of this keepsake book is fast becoming a yearly family tradition in many homes on Christmas Eve: “And just before dawn, in the stable that morn, the Messiah, the Savior, the Redeemer was born.”
