I am a big believer in reading to children. I am always looking for new material that will appeal to my kids, and make them desire to sit still for the whole story. Now this in of itself, is quite the task.
I was given a copy of “The Night After Christmas” to read and when I was contacted, I was very excited. My kids love reading Christmas stories, and we do it year round. “The Night After Christmas” is a very charming book that will recall to mind the original Clement C. Moore classic. In this tale, it talks about Santa returning to the North Pole after completing his busiest night of the year. I love that Michael Hebler, the author, took an old tale of “Twas the Night Before Christmas”, and used some of the same rhyming patterns, to give us something fresh and new. The tale of what goes on after Christmas Day is just delightful and fun.
The illustrations in “The Night After Christmas” are a little whimsical, as well as beautiful and vibrant. I loved the creativity that Anita Driessen, the illustrator, put into the pictures that each page painted in my mind. You can actually get a sneak peek at a few of the book’s pages over on the website of “The Night After Christmas”.
The 28 page picture book is available in both print and eBook formats ($8.99 for 8.5 x 8.5â€ print / $0.99 for full color eBook). You can purchase a paperback copy of “The Night After Christmas” on Amazon for $8.99. The Kindle or eBook version is just $.99 on Amazon.
