One thought on “The Night Before Christmas and Other Popular Stories For Children




  • Really enjoyed this collection of sweet little Christmas storiestely some to share with the kids next year, since many stories are simple reminders to stop thinking of yourself over the holidays, etc.



  • While these stories were pretty simple, and unheard of by me other than the first one, The Night Before Christmas, they were enjoyable Christmas read aloud stories for my daughter, which brought back ideas of a simpler time, when one gift could be plenty, when a family meal was cherished, when manners were a requirement, and when charity was desired, and when love and peace were the true meaning of Christmas.


  • It seems kind of funny reading a Christmas book in the middle of July butI ve been reading a bunch of books on my kindle that I have never read before, and this was one of them Better sooner than later I guess This is a classic I m guessing, and despite that, I m going to give this book 2 stars because I thought it was okay My rating was not affected by the Summer month 2014 Summer Reading Review


  • Some of these stories are really cute but many are only about a page long without a real plot However, all of them are about doing nice things for other people at Christmas and that there is to Christmas than getting presents If you are reading this one story a night then it will be fine but if you try to read several in succession small children will lose interest quickly.


  • Book of Christmas tales from 1903 with The Night Before Christmas as the most well known These are very short Christmas tales with a moral and I enjoyed the stories they gave an insight into a bygone age I don t think the modern child would understand all the references such as a muff or the ragged schools , but still may like the stories.


  • Will be reading this book all through the holidaysMy son s love to read and love to be read to I wanted this book because I wanted to read my grandson on of my favorite Christmas stories, but I will be reading to myself, reading to my children and grandchild, and maybe even the youth group at church.


  • Wonderful Christmas storiesI really enjoyed these sweet stories and will love reading them for the next holiday season.Get this book for a variety of stories about the Christmas season.


  • Since it was published in 1903, the stories were pretty cheesy, and pretty much the same No wonder The night before Christmas was such a big hit It was way better than any other children s stories up to that point.


  • Though the first chapter story of the book was true to the classic children s Christmas rhyme that always brings back some happy memories , I found little to no use of the most of the rest of this book Unless you want a disappointment, there s little to no use of buying it.


  • I LOVED this book I chose this rating because it is a wonderfully book and it has you under stand things like sibling rivalry I LOVED this book because it shows both sides and I also LOVE Christmas and it s story s are wonder full





  • Gag worthy short stories intended for children Any child I know would slap me silly if I tried to read them such sugary sweet morality tales with one dimensional characters.




  • Love it so so muchYeah so much love for this book and the other day when I was just thinking about it, I thought I d ask somebody else if they liked it too
