My kids love these books! We got the Night Before Halloween and The Night before the Night before Christmas! The boys love the story and its funny and easy for them to follow, and the illustrations are hysterical for them to look at! I have a 3 year old and a 2 year old and during November we read this book every night till the big day and the same for the Halloween one and the Christmas one...I enjoy these books myself I find myself laughing out loud when I read them to the boys!
