    6. While these stories were pretty simple, and unheard of by me other than the first one, The Night Before Christmas, they were enjoyable Christmas read aloud stories for my daughter, which brought back ideas of a simpler time, when one gift could be plenty, when a family meal was cherished, when manners were a requirement, and when charity was desired, and when love and peace were the true meaning of Christmas.

    7. It seems kind of funny reading a Christmas book in the middle of July butI ve been reading a bunch of books on my kindle that I have never read before, and this was one of them Better sooner than later I guess This is a classic I m guessing, and despite that, I m going to give this book 2 stars because I thought it was okay My rating was not affected by the Summer month 2014 Summer Reading Review

    8. Some of these stories are really cute but many are only about a page long without a real plot However, all of them are about doing nice things for other people at Christmas and that there is to Christmas than getting presents If you are reading this one story a night then it will be fine but if you try to read several in succession small children will lose interest quickly.

    9. Book of Christmas tales from 1903 with The Night Before Christmas as the most well known These are very short Christmas tales with a moral and I enjoyed the stories they gave an insight into a bygone age I don t think the modern child would understand all the references such as a muff or the ragged schools , but still may like the stories.

    12. Since it was published in 1903, the stories were pretty cheesy, and pretty much the same No wonder The night before Christmas was such a big hit It was way better than any other children s stories up to that point.

    13. Though the first chapter story of the book was true to the classic children s Christmas rhyme that always brings back some happy memories , I found little to no use of the most of the rest of this book Unless you want a disappointment, there s little to no use of buying it.
