One of my childhood books. It has a few bars of music at the back but the majority of the text is A Visit from St. Nicholas. It has photo illustrations by Tadasu Izawa, who modelled the characters in clay. It‘s a delightful version that I have fond memories of and I enjoy re-reading it.

Up next! This amazing book was a giveaway and is from the late 80‘s. I read it every Christmas Eve to my children who loved it. They have since read it to some of their younger cousins. I eagerly await the arrival of my future grand babies so I can continue the tradition into the next generation! Happy Christmas Eve everyone! Let the traditions begin! #HollyJollyReads

This was our bedtime story last night. Also I learned that some of the reindeer names have changed over the years for linguistic reasons. It‘s very interesting. In this version we have Donder instead of Donner. #WinterGames #HolidayRead #ImpulseRead #TheFilthyAnimals

Mehso-so

The story is about Santa's visit. There's nothing wrong with the book but I felt meh about it. The art falls on the more realistic side and the text on each page is very small, almost like this book should be read to your toddler. Also, yup, Santa is creepy looking 😂😂 #tmskellington #wintergames

#UCFLAE3414SU19 This TL depicts a mans night before Christmas and run in with old Saint Nick himself! It is a classic story and makes for an amazing S or RA... I would even like to see this as a DR perhaps. It describes the man going to bed and then being awoken by a loud noise only to see the reindeer and jolly old elf deliver toys to his very house.

DawnS https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/the-night-before-christmas has ways to use this book across multiple subjects that would be so much fun for kids around Christmas. Doing a S with this book will meet UDL 1.2 offering alternatives for auditory information and ESOL strategy 17 providing contextual support through models, demonstrations, realia, body language, and facial expressions. 6mo
gabbymartin You did so great at your storytelling for this! I definitely couldn't memorize all of it but I agree it makes for an excellent storytelling or read aloud. This is a perfect book to read for the holidays. I like the resource you posted for it too!! 6mo
DawnS Thanks!! @gabbymartin that‘s sweet of you to say! It did take some practice remembering but it was actually a lot of fun! 6mo

I love the poem anyway (as a kid, I always appreciated that Moore‘s Santa had ashes and soot on his clothes and hadn‘t managed some weirdly pristine slide down a chimney) but Mary Engelbreit‘s art makes this event better. It‘s cozy, it‘s cheerful, it‘s fun and there are gems to spot on each page. Highly recommended for everyone & on that note: A merry Christmas to all and to all a good night. 😊🎄😊

We had a lovely night celebrating Christmas Eve with Polish friends in Mumbai, then played time zones to call home and wish those starting their tomorrow a Very Merry Christmas. Now, it‘s the wind down of Mumbai Christmas Eve and since it is VERY early in the morning, something short, cozy and comforting was in order. I‘m soon to imitate that mouse but couldn‘t sleep without a re-read. I adore this book and this art (Mary Engelbriet!) especially!

Anyone remember this one? Hardrock, Coco and Joe. Awful animation but so goofy and fun. I believe it, along with frosty the snowman and Suzy Snowflake, was from the early 60s. They continued to be shown on WGN here in Chicago through the early 90s

Factaddict73 I cannot quite figure this whole thing out: Do we discuss books we choose or you assign them? Is there an allotted period of time to complete a book? Do you have a “Master List” somewhere that books are sourced from? Are you older published works or newer ones? Is there a back-and-forth discussion on certain books, or do individuals just post their observations and opinions? There are lots more questions, but I‘m sure you know mine...Answer please 14mo
Litsy @Factaddict73 I'd be happy to help! But I'm not quite sure what your question is about, exactly. Litsy in general? SantaThing (since you commented on a post about SantaThing)? If you'd like to email us at litsy@librarything.com, I'll be happy to help you from there. 14mo

This P book is a classic and would be wonderful for a seasonal storytelling. Many audio books are available free of cost online for this book and ties in well with UDL 1.2 and some vocabulary words could be taught prior to the S of the more difficult words, which incorporates ESOL 5. The following link goes directly to scholastic to a lesson plan which encourages generosity and giving among students

AndreaC https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/night-christma... If some students do not celebrate Christmas, the assignment could be altered to what gift they would like to give to a friend rather than as St. Nick. I think this book would be a lovely choice for the day before students go on Winter break, perhaps during a holiday party. #UCFLAE3414f17 (edited) 2y
