Publisher's Description

Celebrate Christmas with the joyous poetry of the incomparable Maya Angelou.

Angelou’s beautiful, moving, and beloved poem, which she first read at the 2005 White House tree-lighting ceremony, now comes alive as a fully illustrated children’s book, celebrating the promise of peace in the holiday season. In this simple story, a family joins with their community—rich and poor, black and white, Christian, Muslim, and Jew—to celebrate the holidays.

This special package includes an audio CD of the author reading the poem aloud.

Author Bio

Maya Angelou (1928–2014) was one of the most celebrated and distinguished voices of our time. She was an inspiring renaissance woman—poet, writer, performer, teacher, and director. In addition to her bestselling and internationally acclaimed autobiographies, beginning with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, she wrote five poetry collections, five books of essays, two cookbooks, and the celebrated poem "On the Pulse of Morning," which she read at the inauguration of President William Jefferson Clinton. Dr. Angelou was the recipient of three Grammys, the National Medal of Arts, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and more than fifty honorary degrees. Learn more at
