under the xmas treeKindergarten-Grade 4-Grimes and Nelson are ideal collaborators for this celebration of the sights, sounds, and feelings of Christmas from a child’s point of view. Twenty-three poems take readers through the season, focusing on the life of an urban African-American family. The selections capture the excitement and wonder (« Slightly giddy/And primed/For miracles ») as well as humor (« Christmas-His cradle/Is empty. Did He grow up?/Is He Santa now? ») and wisdom.
