It?s the night before Christmas, and Cookie Monster is dozing peacefully, until a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer land on Sesame Street.

Cookie Monster is delighted to have a visit from Santa, but there?s just one problem: he?s already eaten all of Santa?s cookies!

Luckily, Elmo and the rest of the Sesame Street friends are ready to help!

Cookie Monster loves cookies so much he eats ’em all up even Santa’s. Lucky he has friends like Ernie, Bert, the Count, Oscar, Grover, and Abby to help him save the day. This book is a recipe for good will topped by another recipe for sugar cookies. Double treat!

I remember when I was still in grade school memorizing “Twas the Night before Christmas. Now I am not putting this classic down at all. It is truly one of my Christmas favorites BUT. Well, let me tell you 123 Sesame Street’s version is a lot more fun and easier to read.

It?s Christmas Eve, Have you been good? Santa?s packed up all the presents and is headed your way!

With the help of a certain red-nosed reindeer, Santa will fly south from his home in the North Pole, over the ice and the snow, above North America, right over your town… all the way to your house. Do you hear footsteps on the roof…?

Part of a nationwide series, each Santa is Coming book features art and text creating for a specific city, state, or region.

I am a true Jersey girl. I love its sights and sounds. Perhaps that is why the book Santa Is Coming to New Jersey delights me so. Perhaps it is that I’ll get to read it while cuddling with grandson AL as the family celebrates Christmas. Its bright contemporary color illustrations are charming. Its text is local highs. What way to whet any young kid’s?interest in the history of this state!

This is a story that builds on tradition letters to Santa, Claus’s workshop toys, elves filling his sleigh, reindeer riding across the sky, a foggy predicament saved by Rudolph, sightings at Cape May Lighthouse; Princeton’s Blair Hall; Loew’s Theater, Jersey City; Ellis Island; Wars of America Memorial; State Capitol; Lucy the Margate Elephant; Newark Tower, Jersey City; Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Newark; Paramount Theater, Asbury Park and even a Ho Ho (Kus) with him with not one house or chimney of good boys and girls missed.

  1. We always read ‘TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS to our children. No little ones close by to read to. When our children were older, my husband would dress as Santa and to to neighbors who had little ones and read the book to them. A friend did it for our girls when they were 2 and 3 and it was wonderful.
