Watch Again: A favorite from 2019 as Leon Bibb reads "The Night Before Christmas" to Charles Dickens students

As we settle down to a long winter's nap, Leon looks forward to reciting this classic poem to school children again.

CLEVELAND — On December 10th, 2019, Leon Bibb and photojournalist Steve Pullen traveled to the Charles Dickens school in the city of Cleveland. Leon brought with him, the holiday classic, The Night Before Christmas, which is also known as A Visit from St. Nicholas. 

He read the poem aloud as dozens of 3rd graders watched and listened. Afterward, Leon asked the children about their favorite books. 

"Hope to see you next year," Leon said at the end of the program.

Sadly, due to the pandemic, that return visit was not mean to be.  

But it is our plan to return in 2021 for another holiday classic.

In the meantime, watch Leon's reading of The Night Before Christmas above. You can also watch his recent "Cleveland is the holiday town" reading from "A Very Cleveland Holiday Special" below, plus other Leon holiday stories:
