Welcome to my meme, Monday Memories, where I feature favorite books we've loved from the past. You can link to an old review, or write something new about a beloved book from your past. Really, what's important is not the book, but why it is memorable to you. So, have fun reminiscing, and leave a comment below, so we can all enjoy your memories.
Night Before Christmas, by Clement Clarke Moore
I am the youngest of four children, and I believe this book may have gone through all four of us. But I was the one that took a black marker and defaced the front cover (thank goodness I didn't scribble all over the inside.) I wrote my name, colored his eyebrows black, and outlined the title, as well as just generally scribbling over everything. I don't know why. I don't recall doing this to any other books. I have no idea what I was thinking. What's that weird face in the middle of his beard??? Both of my children have enjoyed this same book (they are both in their 20s now, so it's been around a while.) I love the illustrations, and I've included a picture of my favorite one. I loved that the book was shaped like Santa, and his hat on the cover, is fuzzy (and, yes, there is a bit of fuzz still left.)
