’Twas the Night Before Christmas,
Following up on The Family Bedtime Treasury (2012) and The Family Storybook Treasury (2011), the publisher offers eight of its Christmas-themed picture books, from Merry Christmas, Curious George, by Cathy Hapka and illustrated by Mary O’Keefe Young (2006), to Clement C. Moore’s ’Twas the Night before Christmas, illustrated by Jessie Wilcox Smith (1912). Other selections feature charming characters such as Tomie dePaola’s Strega Nona, Olivier Dunrea’s Ollie, Helen Lester’s Tacky, Bernard Waber’s Lyle, and Wong Herbert Yee’s Fireman Small. After each story, a double-page spread presents a Christmas carol through words, music, and illustrations. The volume is beautifully designed and produced, though the large, square format works better for some picture books (John and Ann Hassett’s The Finest Christmas Tree, 2005) than others (Dunrea’s Merry Christmas, Ollie, 2008). Showcasing modern, secular Christmas favorites along with traditional carols, this is a wonderfully varied anthology for family sharing. Preschool-Grade 3. --Carolyn Phelan, Booklist
