Twas the Night…

I’ve had a lot of fun reading and re-reading a cache of seasonal books for kids and enjoying their delight at both the stories and the upcoming festivities. One of the most entertaining books for our youngest family member was Barbara Reid’s The Night Before Christmas with charming little mice as the characters. Jolly Old St. Nick also appears as a mouse.

This classic poem is illustrated with Barbara’s wonderful Plasticine art, the form she is so well-known for. I hope you enjoy her illustration of the stockings “hung with care.”

And I wish you the best of the season: Happy times with family and friends and many good books to read!

Happy New Year!
