Review for the Night Before Christmas in America
August 8, 2019 Format: Hardcover”The Night Before Christmas in America is a wonderful, educational book about Christmas in the early era of America. Readers will delight at Santa’s travels with Presidents Adams, Jefferson, Madison and Monroe travel in Santa’s sleigh. The presidents help Santa understand how America came to be. They talk about important documents like the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence. I loved the approach the author took of famous people traveling with Santa and discussing important events that helped form our great Democracy. Also, there is a salute to the people who sacrifice their lives while serving in the military. Four of those decorated veterans’ informative biographies are in the back of the book. I loved learning about these brave and talented members of the military. Five stars all the way. Well done Ms. Grabowski. I think it’s so important for children to know about the history of our country and appreciate the founders, and our military heroes.
