Item description for Christmas Is Coming! by Charles Ghigna, Debra Ghigna & Mary O'Keefe Young...
Overview A collection of poems describing a family's Christmas celebration, from picking out a tree to storing the decorations in the attic for another year.
Publishers Description Thoughts of Christmas become joyful poems in this celebration of the holiday season. 27 poems illustrate the anticipation, delight, and warmth of Christmas-time. These charming verses will wrap readers up in the exhilaration of decorating the house in Christmas finery, going on the hunt for the perfect tree, and all of the other wonderful events of the holiday season. Accompany a family as they excitedly prepare for Christmas, enjoy the holiday, and then carefully put it all away until next year. Lovely watercolor illustrations by Mary O'Keefe Young bring to mind Christmas tree lights and shiny presents, the smell of Christmas cookies, and cold snow--great for sledding and building funny snowmen. The joys of Christmas are brightly illuminated in warmly illustrated poems that children will read again and again, year after year.

EDUCATION WORLD: BOOKS IN EDUCATION Jan 21, 2001
CHRISTMAS IS COMING! "Written in first person, each poem reflects the thoughts of one of three children. The image throughout is timeless. The verses are simple and follow very basic rhyming schemes, making them easy and fun for younger children to read aloud. The poems are useful as a starting point for classroom discussion, craft projects, or student compositions on a variety of subjects, ranging from the preparation for and celebration of Christmas to the ideas of family, generosity, and tradition. Children may wish to compare their own holiday experiences to those in the book." --Education World
