Our featured book this week is one that we believe that every household should own. In our own, it’s one that is picked up on Christmas Eve and read aloud to our children and as they have grown older they have joined in reading. The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clark Moore is a classic Christmas Book that has stood the test of time and as you read it the words will come rushing back to you from the times you have heard it before.
