|This book will become a new tradition for all ages! Jan 18, 2004|
|I came upon this book after the holidays were over and regret that I didn't find it before Christmas. This book was so enchanting that I went back to purchase more as gifts for next Christmas and was disappointed when they were sold out. This story is written in poem form as recalled by Dinghy Sharp, the great-great-grandaughter of Clement C. Moore, author of the famous poem, The Night Before Christmas, written on Christmas Eve of 1822. The story captures the history and origin of his poem that was passed down from generation to generation in their family. Many verses from the poem are explained in the story to help readers understand the poem's meaning. The story ends with a copy of The Night Before Christmas, handwritten by Clement C. Moore along with his signature, dated 1862. This story will become a new family tradition in my home for many years to come. It will be read on Christmas Eve, among other stories that are currently read as tradition in our home. I intend to pass this wonderful version of Moore's poem on to my children with the hope that it will be passed on from generation to generation as it was told in the Moore family.|
|The Truth Behind "Twas the Night Before Christmas" Jan 8, 2003|
|Written by a relative of Clement Clarke Moore, the author shares the history of the famous Christmas story. Done all in rhyming poetry with explanations of phrases used throughout like "threw open the shutters". Beautiful illustrations as well. Makes you want to crawl into a warm bed and read it again. My 8th grade students enjoyed hearing it very much! Worth the purchase.|
