Celebrate Christmas with the joyous poetry of the incomparable Maya Angelou. "Angels and Mortals, Believers and Nonbelievers, look heavenward," she writes, "and speak the word aloud. Peace." Angelou's moving poem is a radiant affirmation of the goodness of humanity. First read at the 2005 White House tree-lighting ceremony, it comes alive again as a fully illustrated children's book, celebrating the promise of peace in the holiday season. In this simple story, a family joins with their community-rich and poor, black and white, Muslim and Jew-to celebrate the holidays. This special package includes an audio CD of the author reading the poem aloud.
