    • I love Christmas time. "The Night Before Christmas" is one of my very favorite Christmas books. Holly Hobbie brings a vintage feel to Christmas in this book. The illustrations are stunning, as usual for Holly Hobbie. The night-time, snow-covered ground and buildings, along with a snowman, make this book a very warm read to me.


    • Absolutely love this version of “The Night Before Christmas.” The illustrations are so fun! Had to buy it. :)
