This one is simply the classic The Night Before Christmas poem by Clement C. Moore. This Little Golden Book version was published in 1949. What is really special about it is the lovely illustrations by Corinne Malvern. There is a little bio of her in the front of the book: "Corinne Malvern has excelled in two of the arts. She was a successful child actress, then studied art, and has since exhibited her work and done commercial art. She has illustrated ... many of the Little Golden Books."
Since the poem was written in 1822, the artist opens the book with an illustration depicting a calendar page from December 1822.
