Staff Favorites: 18 Must-Read Children's Books

'Twas the Night Before Christmas

by Clement C. Moore
Ages 0-5

We think this Christmas classic is a wonderful read for children of all ages. The familiar opening lines offer a sense of comfort and familiarity, and the illustrations are beautifully reminiscent of the era in which the poem was written. This book will quickly become a holiday tradition in your house, as it has in ours.
