Publisher's Summary

As a boy, every Christmas Eve, my Scottish father, Big Don, introduced my brothers, sister and I to the spirit of Santa Claus by reading aloud "'Twas the Night Before Christmas". Inspired by this wonderous experience as a child, I have continued this family tradition by reading it to my own lovely children. I am forever grateful to Big Don for sharing his incredible gift for storytelling and hope that in some small way I may inspire your children to awaken their belief in Santa through my reading of this classic Christmas poem, written in 1822. Happy Christmas to you all!

A Classic

The narrator's voice is warm and cozy. I've enjoyed reading this poem for years. I bought this for my kids to listen to alongside a illustrated book we own.

this reminds me of Christmas when I was a kid

Would you consider the audio edition of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas to be better than the print version?

Absolutely! this version is 1000% better!

What other book might you compare 'Twas the Night Before Christmas to and why?

Christmas Carol, because it was released at the same time.

Have you listened to any of Chris Hendrie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, all of them. This is my favorite though.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night, HO HO HO!
