Lynn Blair, a mother, grandmother, and teacher with a lifelong love of poetry, has completed her new book “’Twas Before the First Christmas”: a warmhearted poetic work sure to become a holiday favorite with young children.

Get lost in the blend of two stories told,
in delightful verse, one ancient, one old.
Travel the flip side of a poem well-known,
back to Christ’s birth, in a familiar tone.
So spring to your seat! To your team give a whistle!
(Hot chocolate and PJs could be beneficial.)
Now nestle on in, as wonder takes flight.
Let LOVE guide your way. Merry Christmas! Good night.

This story puts a new spin on “The Night Before Christmas”, a magical poem many of us grew to love as children.

In “’Twas Before the First Christmas”, both text and illustrations play with the cadence of that original rhyme, authentically retelling the story of Christ’s birth through uniquely refreshed, and engaging verse.

Published by Page Publishing, Lynn Blair’s engrossing book is a delightful addition to any children’s library.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “’Twas Before the First Christmas” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
