Annotation:
First published in 1823 as "A Visit from St. Nicholas," Clement Moore's much loved poem-- which is more often called "The Night Before Christmas"--is an enduring holiday classic. Before Disney and before Seuss, using rhyming couplets that are like vivid snapshots, Moore set down what soon became the standard Christmas-time references: a quiet house with the "stockings hung by the chimney with care"; Santa (here only called St. Nicholas), with his red face and round belly; and a miniature sleigh with "eight tiny reindeer," whom he names one by one. Moore's classic has been published in many formats, and its story has been interpreted and reinterpreted by authors and illustrators over the many years, to the delight of readers old and young.First published in 1823 as "A Visit from St. Nicholas," Clement Moore's much loved poem, which is more often called "The Night Before Christmas," is an enduring holiday classic.

Author Bio
Rachel Isadora
Author and illustrator Rachel Isadora planned a career as a ballerina but an injury forced her to abandon that dream. Many of her books, such as her first, MAX, reflect her interest in dance. Her 1979 work, BEN'S TRUMPET, was named a Caldecott Honor Book. In addition to her picture books, Isadora also creates books for toddlers such as I HEAR and FRIENDS.
