Anita Lobels beautifully illustrated edition of The Night Before Christmas is now available as an eBook.
Clement C. Moore was born in the Chelsea section of New York City in 1779 and wrote his famous poem for children there in 1822.
Anita Lobel has illustrated more than 40 books for children, including the Caldecott Honor Book On Market Street.
“A snow covered Victorian New York City is the location for Lobel’s version of this classic poem. Jolly St. Nick arrives, leaving an array of toys before he flies over a majestic scene of the Brooklyn Bridge and city skyline. Lobel’s paintings are gentle and reassuring, filled with intricate detail and family love.”—School Library Journal, Starred
