The quiet house of Clement Clarke Moore's Christmas
poem comes to life in this expandable accordion book.
The large front window of the unfolding 3-D house shows
Santa arriving with a bulging sack of toys and gifts, while the
attic window reveals the children "all snug in their beds."
The vibrant, whimsical illustrations—full of charming details—
put a modern twist on the classic verse. An accompanying
22-page illustrated booklet features the poem itself, along
with punch-out figures that can be added to the tunnel scene.
Clement Clarke Moore was a scholar and poet. He wrote the now
famous poem in 1822 for his young children. Juliette Borda is
