Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another 5+ read! Yet another fabulous collection of poems for young readers from Oxford Press - which definitely should be read aloud! Some poems are religious in nature, but many (while related to the season) are concerned with the 'nature' of winter - rebirth, anticipation, etc. An excellent keepsake for young readers & their families - one of the poems is very like the book The Best Christmas Pageant Ever... Highly recommended as a top-notch way to lead young readers to the joy of poetry.
