This is a nice collection for poems for children of approx 4+. "School Carol," perfectly captures the excitement of school preparations for the holidays - with decorations in the classrooms and the promise of fun activities. Others ask whether there will be a white Christmas, describe the excitement of Christmas Eve or give Santa some suggestions to help him on his rounds! Nick Sharratt, as always, provides excellent illustrations. This is a nice book to share with your children and will help get you into the Christmas spirit!
