Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this beautiful, deeply moving poem, Maya Angelou inspires us to embrace the peace and promise of Christmas, so that hope and love can once again light up our holidays and the world. A family joins with their community — rich and poor, black and white, Muslim and Jew — to celebrate the holidays.

"Angels and Mortals, Believers and Nonbelievers, look heavenward," she writes, "and speak the word aloud. Peace."

Read by the poet at the lighting of the National Christmas Tree at the White House on December 1, 2005, Maya Angelou's celebration of the Glad Season is a radiant affirmation of the goodness of life and a beautiful holiday gift for people of all faiths. An audio CD featuring a reading of the poem by its author accompanies this edition.

Synopsis:

Maya Angelou was raised in Stamps, Arkansas. In addition to her bestselling autobiographies, including I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and The Heart of a Woman, she wrote numerous volumes of poetry, among them Phenomenal Woman, And Still I Rise, On the Pulse of Morning, and Mother. Maya Angelou died in 2014.

Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher have collaborated on many award-winning and New York Times bestselling picture books, including My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss, New York’s Bravest by Mary Pope Osborne, The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams, The Cheese by Margie Palatini, The Boy on Fairfield Street by Kathleen Krull, and Star Climbing.

Beautiful poetry that renewed my idea of Christmas. This one could easily become a family annual tradition to read during the holiday time.
