Manger by Lee Bennett HopkinsThere 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.

Christmas Poem: The Reason for Christmas (Christ and Christianity)
Christmas Poems About Jesus' Birth
How can you take Christ out of Christmas What meaning would there be For truly it is Jesus who is the reason for this special season you see. Those who want to say happy holiday should be reminded this I say, you can find Holy there and that should be our prayer. And further still you say, Santa Claus, well, he was a Christian leader too by the name of Saint Nicholas who helped others all year through. So as hard as you may try There is no reason why we would have Christmas time without Jesus in our mind. A time where we do see peace, Where fighting actually does cease. Giving gifts and sharing with all, When the world seems anew.
