#7 Favorite Christmas Picture Book: The Barnyard Night Before Christmas by Terrill & Newbold
The Barnyard Night Before Christmas is a fun retelling of the classic The Night Before Christmas. With a twist. Adapted by Beth Terrill and illustrated by Greg Newbold, this picture book is lots of fun for everyone. (Just look at the cover art!)
"NOW BESSIE! NOW, BILLY! NOW, BINGO! NOW, CHICKIE! On, Lambsy! On, Trigger! On, Quacker and Piggy!" And laying his finger aside of his nose, Up, up, Santa Claus and those animals rose. Notice something a little different? Well, in this hilarious retelling of the iconic Clement C. Moore Christmas poem, it's a barnyard full of mischievous, quarrelsome livestock that gets Santa and his sleigh off the ground this Christmas Eve. With a little ingenuity, a few balloons, and a lot of attitude, they give Santa a Christmas Eve he'll never forget!
Love this book!
