The Night Before New Year's

"The Night Before New Year's" by Natasha Wing, 2009

The kids were excited for the upcoming celebration. "Out with the old and in with the new!" they shouted. They planned to stay up past midnight, hung decorations, had a large feast of family favorites, and played games. The family did lots of things to pass the times even though the kids were getting sleepy.

"'Put on your hats,' said Mom. 'Let's practice our cheer!' Counting down from ten, without a single mistake, we tooted horns and popped poppers! I was now wide awake!"

Do you think the kids were able to stay up to ring in the New Year? Read this family-fun picture book to find out.
