The Lovereading4Kids comment
A treasure trove of delights old and new, this celebratory anthology captures all the different kinds of magic associated with Christmas. Poems about the Christmas crib sit alongside those on themes of Christmas Shopping, hanging up stockings and, of course, Father Christmas. Of particular delight is a section of Christmas songs. No such book would be complete without Clement Clark Moore’s A Visit from St Nicholas and it is duly included.
The Oxford Book of Christmas Poems by Michael Harrison, Christopher Stuart-clark
What better time than Christmas to ponder the passing of the year, the mystery of the birth of Christ, the traditions of the season, and the expectation of what the New Year might usher in? And what better way to reflect on such themes than through poetry? This is a thought-provoking, satisfying collection that brings together poems ranging from traditional wassailing songs to the work of contemporary poets. Illustrated in both colour and black and white by artists such as Peter Bailey, Charles Keeping and Ian Beck, it is an anthology to treasure from childhood through to adulthood.
