In this beautiful, deeply moving poem, Maya Angelou inspires us to embrace the peace and promise of Christmas, so that hope and love can once again light up our holidays and the world. "Angels and Mortals, Believers and Nonbelievers, look heavenward," she writes, "and speak the word aloud. Peace."

Read by the poet at the lighting of the National Christmas Tree at the White House on December 1, 2005, Maya Angelou's celebration of the "Glad Season" is a radiant affirmation of the goodness of life and a beautiful holiday gift for people of all faiths.

Good book ,but definitely for children older than 2.

it was a beautiful book but the message is pretty big for a little person - I think this is really aimed at older children, not 3 year olds...
