The holly and the ivy, When they are both full grown, Of all the trees that are in the wood, The holly bears the crown.
O, the rising of the sun And the running of the deer, The playing of the merry organ, Sweet singing in the choir.
This festive collection of classic and brand-new poems celebrates all the best things about Christmas from the Nativity to Father Christmas, including snow, angels, reindeer, Christmas trees and, of course, Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus.
Decorated in full-colour by Axel Scheffler. 'Celebrates everything from snow and stockings to the Nativity story and its associated wonder'.
