I received a free copy of this product as a member of Zondervan's Z Blog Squad in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions are my own.

If you've read about our Celebrating the Season tradition, you already know that we're big fans of the classic Clement C. Moore poem around here, as well as the Rankin & Bass cartoon that we grew up watching on tv.

And if you've hung around the blog much at all, then you also know how much I love reading children's books that rhyme.

So when this arrived, I was so excited I knew there was no way I could wait until Christmas night to read it:

'Twas the Evening of Christmas

I had such a blast reading the sing-song verse of this story and it checks all the Christmas story boxes:

No room at the inn.

The baby is born!

The angels make their announcement.

Even though we already own approximately 835 Christmas-themed books already, this one has already become one of our favorites!

Besides the poetic nature of this story, the illustrations are just fabulous and really deserve a second look.

I love this perspective -- not only from the dove's point of view, but glimpsing through the fog, as well.

Their faces are so expressive!

Looking through all those angel's wings -- so creative!

It's such a wonderful book, I highly suggest you wrap one up to open and enjoy in your family this year, too!
