Description

This delightful collection of Christmas poems for young children is lavishly illustrated with entertaining, full-color drawings. Each poem boasts its own two-page color spread featuring the imaginative creations of award-winning artist Nick Sharratt. The anthology includes poems about robins and reindeer, snow and trees, bells and decorations, angels and stars. Santa Claus, of course, figures prominently in most of these short, lively pieces. Among other useful things, kids will learn how Christmas is celebrated "in far-off lands and near," how they can decorate their classroom for the holiday, and how to sneak a peek at their Christmas presents without the telltale Christmas tree needles sticking from the back of their sweaters. [excerpt] "I don't know why they're blaming me/When all I did was climb a tree/And bat a shiny silver ball./How could I know the tree would fall?" (from "Santa Claws" by Julia Donalson)show more
