The Night Before Christmas: A Brick Story

My new favorite Christmas book is here in the Children's Room! It's The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore! Yes, everyone already knows this story- but this new version of the book is illustrated with LEGO bricks! LEGO house. LEGO furniture. LEGO reindeer. LEGO presents under the LEGO tree! It's fun to see how the illustrator of the book, Amanda Brack, used bricks and pieces to recreate the details of the story. My favorite one is where she adds soot to the mini-fig Santa after he comes down the chimney!

Thanks to two generous patrons for donating this wonderful version of a classic Christmas tale. Kids will be checking this book out all year long!
