Research shows that boys are slow to read because they usually only see women doing it; their moms and their teachers.
I read stories to help boys learn to read faster.

This book, however, is extremely refreshing, and perfect for our Poetry-filled Yuletide Cheer theme: Cajun Night Before Christmas by “Trosclair” and illustrated by James Rice.
Cajun Night Before Christmas by “Trosclair,” Edited by Howard Jacobs, and Illustrated by James Rice.
As I was going through quite a number of picture books about Christmas and poetry collections with a Yuletide theme – I couldn’t help but feel that most of them sounded cliche and predictable, trite and b-o-r-i-n-g.
You won’t catch me reading “little match girl” or “the gift of the magi” without dropping a tear or two! 🙂 But I also love something different and this book does sound refreshingly different.

Nicholas", also known as "The Night Before Christmas" and "’Twas the Night Before Christmas" from its first line, is a poem first published anonymously in 1823, and later attributed to Clement Clarke Moore, who acknowledged authorship in 1837.
Advocates for Livingston’s authorship argue that Moore "tried at first to disavow" the poem,[11] contending that although he claimed only two changes were introduced in the first printing it actually differs from his own on 23 points.[citation needed] They also posit that Moore falsely claimed to have translated a book.[12] Document dealer and historian Seth Kaller has challenged both claims.
Moore’s connection with the poem has been questioned by Professor Donald Foster,[7] who used textual content analysis and external evidence to argue that Moore could not have been the author.[8] Foster believes that Major Henry Livingston, Jr., a New Yorker with Dutch and Scottish roots, should be considered the chief candidate for authorship, a view long espoused by the Livingston family.
While Moore originated many of the features that are still associated with Santa Claus today, he borrowed other aspects such as the names of the reindeer.[citation needed] The poem was first published anonymously in the Troy, New York, Sentinel on December 23, 1823, having been sent there by a friend of Moore,[1] and was reprinted frequently thereafter with no name attached.
Livingston was distantly related to Moore’s wife.[8] Foster’s claim, however, has been countered by document dealer and historian Seth Kaller, who once owned one of Moore’s original manuscripts of the poem.
