What a fun way to engage children in the nativity story! Most children and families are familiar with the famous Clement Moore poem The Night Before Christmas. In Twas the Evening of Christmas, Glenys Nellist tells the Christmas story using the same poetic format at the Moore poem. "Twas the evening of Christmas when all thru the town, Every inn was so crowded no room could be found".

Illustrated by Elena Selvanova with soft lines and a gauzy muted palette, children are drawn into the emerging scenes of the story. The fun poetry and soft drawings make the book a perfect, serene bedtime read. Even the cover gets into the picture with foil and sculpted embossing. Twas the Evening of Christmas puts the emphasis on the birth of Jesus which is the reason for the season. Just like many people can recite many parts of the Moore poem, so children and adults will soon be able to recite many of the parts of the Nativity story as they are presented in this book with the rhyming verses. A fun way for families to spend time together during the holidays.
