My Take on the Book
You are probably familiar with the story of the NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS. It has been a classic for many years and so many books have been written using the text written by Clement C . Moore and illustrated by other artists.
This book uses the original story but Amanda Brack has illustrated the story in a very creative way.
She has used bricks or what I will call Leggos. It is amazing to me to see how carefully she formed the scenes for each part of the story. You will see her creativity using the bricks to build the beds, fireplaces, tree,and Santa and his reindeer.
Lots of details for you and your child to view up close on each page.
Note the facial expressions on the characters too.
