This retelling of the traditional Clement Moore poem 'Twas the Night Before Christmas places the emphasis of Christmas in the right place--a stable in the tiny town of Bethlehem. Children are reminded of the Good News message of Christmas as they relive that night.
The author recaptures the emotion of that first Christmas night in a format that families will memorize and enjoy year after year. This book helps children learn through rhymes, bright illustrations, and a unque packaging format with a cut-out section on the front cover that 'opens' onto the manger scene.
Based on Luke 2:8-20.
