The Lovereading4Kids comment

A joyful selection of poems of all kinds that celebrate the many and varied aspects of Christmas. There’s U.A. Fanthorpe on the all-important subject of the delivery of presents in Reindeer Report or Ted Hughes on the wondrous properties of snow and the way it changes the world in Snow and Snow. Christina Rossetti captures the emotions of the nativity in Before the Paling of the Stars while the full text of O Little Town of Bethlehem celebrates the moment of Christ’s birth. The selection ends with a quick look forward to the coming of New Year.

Synopsis

Christmas Poems by Gaby Morgan

The holly and the ivy, When they are both full grown, Of all the trees that are in the wood, The holly bears the crown. O, the rising of the sun And the running of the deer, The playing of the merry organ, Sweet singing in the choir. This festive collection of classic and brand-new poems celebrates all the best things about Christmas from the Nativity to Father Christmas, including snow, angels, reindeer, Christmas trees and, of course, Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus.

Reviews

'Celebrates everything from snow and stockings to the Nativity story and its associated wonder'. TES
