Inspired by Clement C. Moore's "The Night Before Christmas", this book tells in rhyming text the story of how Santa returns to the North Pole, exhausted but full of joy, while children around the world are yet again sleeping contently. Our 6 year old son recalls Moore's story very well, since it is a tradition for our family to read this book before bedtime every Christmas Eve, but our 3 year old twins do not. To them "The Night After Christmas" was just a nice story about Santa. It will make much more sense to them when we reread this book at bedtime on Christmas night. Both the adults and the children enjoyed the story and the textured artwork.
