Description

This is a lovely anthology of poems for the whole Christmas season. There are traditional carols and songs, and modern poems about children's experiences of Christmas: food and families, presents and celebrations, and the snow and ice of winter. The collection is both reflective and joyful and includes contributions from Eleanor Farjeon, Roger McGough, Judith Nicholls, U.A. Fanthorpe and Gareth Owen, among many others. With beautiful colour illustrations throughout, this collection makes a perfect gift at Christmas.show more
