There is a legend that describes how, at midnight on Christmas Eve, all creatures are granted the power of speech for one hour. In this rich collection, Lee Bennett Hopkins and a dozen other poets imagine what responses they might offer. The poems represent a diverse group of animals, but all come together with one singular purpose: celebrating the joy of the miraculous event. This collection of graceful poems provides readers with a Nativity story unlike any other -- at times gently humorous, at times profound, but always inviting readers to appreciate the wonder of Christmas. This book is a perfect gift for the holiday season. Includes poems by... - Lee Bennett Hopkins - Joan Bransfield Graham - Amy Ludwig VanDerwater - X. J. Kennedy - Jude Mandell - Marilyn Nelson - Jane Yolen - Ann Whitford Paul - Prince Redcloud - Rebecca Kai Dotlich - Michele Krueger - Alma Flor Ada - Alice Schertle
