Dr. Clement C. Moore, who wrote the poem, never expected that he would be remembered by it. If he expected to be famous at all as a writer, he thought it would be because of the Hebrew Dictionary that he wrote.
He was born in a house near Chelsea Square, New York City, in 1781; and he lived there all his life. It was a great big house, with fireplaces in it;—just the house to be living in on Christmas Eve.
Dr. Moore had children. He liked writing poetry for them even more than he liked writing a Hebrew Dictionary. He wrote a whole book of poems for them.
One year he wrote this poem, which we usually call “‘Twas the Night before Christmas,” to give to his children for a Christmas present. They read it just after they had hung up their stockings before one of the big fireplaces in their house. Afterward, they learned it, and sometimes recited it, just as other children learn it and recite it now.
It was printed in a newspaper. Then a magazine printed it, and after a time it was printed in the school readers. Later it was printed by itself, with pictures. Then it was translated into German, French, and many other languages. It was even made into “Braille”; which is the raised printing that blind children read with their fingers. But never has it been given to us in so attractive a form as in this book. It has happened that almost all the children in the world know this poem. How few of them know any Hebrew!
Every Christmas Eve the young men studying to be ministers at the General Theological Seminary, New York City, put a holly wreath around Dr. Moore’s picture, which is on the wall of their dining-room. Why? Because he gave the ground on which the General Theological Seminary stands? Because he wrote a Hebrew Dictionary? No. They do it because he was the author of “A Visit from St. Nicholas.”
Most of the children probably know the words of the poem. They are old. But the pictures that Miss Jessie Willcox Smith has painted for this edition of it are new. All the children, probably, have seen other pictures painted by Miss Smith, showing children at other seasons of the year. How much they will enjoy looking at these pictures, showing children on that night that all children like best,—Christmas Eve!
Saying her Prayers
was the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

REVIEWS of Michael Hague’s Twinkle Twinkle Little Star:
From PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Intricately detailed, Victorian-style illustrations highlight this version of the beloved nursery tune, originally published in 1806. (The song, including its lesser-known later verses, comprises the book's entire text... In his characteristic style, which recalls the delicate magic of Arthur Rackham, Hague renders the nursery rhyme as an enchanted dream in which winged fairies guide two sleepy children through a sky shimmering with stars. Piloting a tiny boat on the celestial seas, the boy and girl pass a smiling crescent moon, mermaids with flowing hair and benevolent gnomes before they are guided safely back to bed… a coffee-table book for children sure to please the artist's many fans. All ages.
The oft-recited, well-loved nursery rhyme, originally published in England in 1806, appears in its entirety here, with exquisite, imaginative illustrations designed to conduct little ones to dreamland.
