Grab the kids, a cozy blanket, some hot chocolate, and get ready to be charmed by The Night the Lights Went Out on Christmas by award-winning singer-songwriter Ellis Paul. Based upon Paul’s song of the same name, this read-aloud is a funny, sweet, modern fable about seeing beyond the sparkle and finding the true joy of the season.
About The Night The Lights Went Out On Christmas:
Paul’s book tells the story of Christmas Block, a neighborhood renowned for its cacophony of decorations as families compete to have the biggest and brightest display each season. One year, however, they take it one Christmas light too far and blow out the power for the neighborhood, then the country, and then the entire world! What could be a disaster turns into a blessing in disguise as the neighbors realize the universe has been putting on a light show of its own, and are reminded that it’s the simple joys that truly make the holidays magical. Richly colored illustrations grow brighter and brighter as more lights join the fray with every turn of the page and young readers will delight in spotting new decorations in each vibrant image.
