'Twas the night before Christmas ... Clement C. Moore's timeless poem comes to life as never before with lushly staged, dazzling photographs of the Kissenbear Family. Each scene is brimming with toys and details inviting teddy bear fans of all ages to share in the warmth and good cheer of the holiday season.

No traditional illustrations here. Stevenson, a photographer, has used stuffed animals, snowy backgrounds, little knickknacks, and toys to narrate the familiar poem. The acknowledgments thank a whole list of helpers: the bear maker, the prop master, the scene designer, the costumer, and others. All their work results in delightful two-page spreads that seem real enough to touch. Each of the figures is adorable, but particularly cute is the Teddy Santa, who wears a red-checked suit, sports a curly beard, and carries a corduroy bag of toys. Little kids especially will be intrigued by this--as will adults, who'll look closely to catch all the details. Ilene CooperFrom School Library Journal:
PreSchool-The traditional poem is given the teddy-bear treatment in this playful, oversized picture book. Bright, carefully placed, full-color photo collages depict a family of dressed-up teddies in a charming, wintry house; plush-toy reindeer on the rooftop; and a dapper, if slightly furry St. Nick. While most libraries are well stocked with the poem, this "Kissenbear Family" adventure will appeal to young listeners, especially those with a soft spot for bears.-A.C.
