More Relevant than the Classic
Wow! This is a wonderfully written verse in two languages in the classic style and meter of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas! The author wrote the story as a way to share with her daughter her memories of Christmas Eves in Guatemala and Mexico. Definitely an excellent addition to your holiday books - and perhaps more relevant than Moore's classic....
