When I was a child, I had a very hard time going to sleep on Christmas Eve. Okay, I'll be honest - the closer it gets to Christmas, the harder I find it to sleep. For all the kids out there like me, there's Christmas Eve Good Night by Doug Cushman. It's a fun rhyming book that reminds us that everyone has to say goodnight in order for Christmas to come. In fact, it builds to one of the most famous "good nights" in popular culture: the one that Santa Claus gives as he drives out of sight. The colourful, detailed pictures will have kids pouring over the pictures past their bedtime, and this good night book will have them well on their way to dreaming of sugar plums and other holiday delights.
