Well here is an old favorite that just about everyone has heard of. What a tradition Clement Moore began when he wrote this wonderful old poem. Growing up we always read "The Night Before Christmas" at Christmas time and today we still recite it faithfully every Christmas Eve with our kids. This version is a pretty nice book, even if I do say so myself. There are 36 pages of text and plenty of colorful paintings illustrating the famous poem.
