This poetry anthology includes both jolly and thought-provoking poems old and new to take the reader on a journey through the Christmas season, from the advent of winter to the dawn of the new year. Poems cover much-loved themes including the Nativity and the love and peace of God at Christmas time; the busyness and joy of family life and Christmas preparations; and hope for the new year. Poems are from names including Charles Causley, Steve Turner, Clare Bevan, Edward Lear, Emily Dickinson and many more modern and traditional poets. The anthology is enlivened with pictures and photographs to showcase a whole range of jolly Christmas styles. The giftable hardback format makes this a special book to share at home, whilst the wide scope of the poems makes this equally valuable for teachers looking for assembly and classroom resources .


"This gentle prayer book has an artful vibe."  —Publishers Weekly on Goodnight Prayers

"These prayers, written in simple language using words and ideas children can easily understand, are appropriate for a variety of situations. The collection reminds readers to appreciate the world and encourages children to think about their place in it by addressing issues like social justice, inclusiveness, and peace. . . . A fine addition to religion collections."  —School Library Journal, on The Lion Book of Prayers to Read & Know

"Children three years of age and older will have fun learning about Daniel and his brush with some lions in this well designed and fun-filled scripture paperback."  —Bookloons on Daniel and  the Lions
