What is Christmas Eve without a “night before Christmas” story?
‘Tis the day before Christmas
And all through the trees
The fairies are working
As busy as bees…
Christmas for the fairies is just as busy for them as it is for everyone else, and young readers will delight in seeing that so many of the fairies’ preparations echo their own. But when a storm blows in and ruins everything, it seems impossible that the little ones will wake to the magic they are expecting until…
With the familiar rhythm of Clement C. Moore’s A Night Before Christmas, this is one to charm little ones to sleep to dream of all the magic happening everywhere as they sleep. And if they wake up to discover The Fairies’ Night Before Christmas Activity Book in their Santa Sacks, then they will know that the magic is real!
