It’s December 23, and Christmas is just around the corner. But one family is having trouble getting its act together. Once again, Natasha Wing follows the rhythms and meter of Clement Moore’s classic Christmas poem, yet gives it her own entirely original twist.
This is the cutest book that young children will enjoy but adults will love too.
In the story the it’s the 23rd of December and Mom has the flu and the tree isn’t up, the cookies are burnt,the stockings have holes so socks are hung up instead. The tree they finally buy makes the Peanuts Christmas Tree the prize winner. It has few branches and fewer needles. The lights burn out so the family has to go shopping for replacements and none can be found so they decide to wait in line for hours for the kids to see Santa and the baby pees on Santa’s lap. They finally get home and Dad puts Mom to bed and reads the Night Before Christmas to the kids.
