On Christmas Eve, 1822, Clement Clark Moores house is not as quiet as a mousein fact, everyone is stirring. The three children await the arrival of St. Nicholas. Mother and Father arise thinking they hear intruders. Cousin Harriet enlists the children to copy the poem their father has just written for them, which she hopes to have published for all young people to enjoy. But Father, as a distinguished professor who fears being known as a poet for children, burns the poem so it can never leave the house. The children unite to save the poem for posterity and by attempting to convince their father that his verses should be shared with children everywhere.
