The Lovereading4Kids comment

A jolly adaptation of the celebrated poem ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.’ Here, we go behind the scenes and follow a little boy as he waits eagerly for Santa and is rewarded by having a ride on his sledge.


Creature Was Stirring by Clement Moore

"'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...I don't want to butt in But I'm wide awake And in Santa's book That's a naughty mistake" This little boy tells us what's really happening in the house before Father Christmas arrives. He's too excited to sleep and worries that he'll get in trouble for staying awake on the big night. His curiosity pays off, however, when he has his very own ride on Santa's sleigh...A fresh, innovative story about the magic and mystery of Christmas.
