Christmas Book Reviews for December 24th and December 25th

Here is Ms. Mollie's pick for December 24th:

The Night Before Christmas by Clement Moore and Jan Brett

This book is the ultimate Christmas classic. In this well-known poem, a man tells about a Christmas night where he meets St. Nick himself. The illustrations by Jan Brett do a great job of expressing the whimsy and timelessness of this tale. Every kid needs to be introduced to the poem that has been told and shared since the 19th century.

And here is everyone's favorite for December 25th!

The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg

This magical story about a boy’s adventure to the North Pole has enchanted children for over two decades. Van Allsburg majestic illustrations create a serene world of magic and beauty. The Polar Express reminds all of us that it is okay to believe in what you cannot always see, because it is the believing that makes it magical.

Merry Christmas to All!
