Edited by Lee Bennett Hopkins
Illustrated by Helen Cann
There is a legend that describes how, at midnight on Christmas Eve, all creatures are granted the power of speech for one hour.
In this rich collection, Lee Bennett Hopkins and a dozen other poets imagine what responses they might offer.
The poems represent a diverse group of animals, but all come together with one singular purpose: celebrating the joy of the miraculous event.
This collection of graceful poems provides readers with a Nativity story unlike any other -- at times gently humorous, at times profound, but always inviting readers to appreciate the wonder of Christmas.
This book is a perfect gift for the holiday season. Includes poems by... Lee Bennett HopkinsJoan Bransfield GrahamAmy Ludwig VanDerwaterX.
