The Night Before Christmas, Deep Under the Sea by Kathie Kelleher

Now that the Christmas season is fully upon us, it's time for Christmas books!!! The first Christmas book of the season is . . . The Night Before Christmas, Deep Under the Sea by Kathie Kelleher.

In The Night Before Christams, Deep Under the Sea, Kathie Kelleher takes a beloved Christmas poem and brings it to our underwater friends. The lobster in the story takes the place of the man in his cap of the original.

I thought this book was adorable. Switching the children in the original with mermaids and making Santa's reindeer seahorses instead was genius. I will say as I tried to read this aloud, it was difficult for me to not recite the Clement Moore version instead.

This is a great addition to a Christmas collection for anyone living in one of the ocean states.
