The Night Before Christmas - Retold and Illustrated by Rachel Isadora

Retold and Illustrated by Rachel Isadora

This remake of the 1822 classic poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas" written by Clement C. Moore, also known as "The Night Before Christmas" takes place in an African village with lots of wonderful African touches including Kente clothe patterns, clothes, and toys every where to be found. What a feast for the eyes!!!!!!!
Santa has dreadlocks and a kente cloth red suit and even the reindeer are sporting kentes to boot!

This awesome children's book is Africa inspired, I recommend reading it to every child as they await Santa's arrival and to bed they retire!

Here is the link to the book on

You can find author/illustrator Rachel Isadora at Harper Collins Publishers:

Happy Reading!!!!!!!!!!!

Until the next time.....

A children's book a day, keeps the scary monster away!
