Maya Angelou's beautiful, moving and beloved poem, which she first read at the 2005 White House tree lighting ceremony, now comes alive as a fully illustrated children's book, celebrating the promise of peace in the holiday season.
Children will be inspired by Angelou's words and touched by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher's illustrations. Their textured, softly glowing images perfectly complement Angelou's resonant poem by telling the simple story of a family who join with their community rich and poor, black and white, Chirstian, Muslim, and Jew to celebrate the holidays

Thanks for looking. Visit my store for other books. Don't forget to save me in your favorites. I have 100's of books not yet listed. If you are looking for a specific one let me know. I may have it. New items are always being added.
I ship Monday- Friday mornings. Once payment is receivedand cleared it will go out the following business day. Received means you have gotten an email from me stating Thank you for your payment. Because of time differences this has caused a slight confusion in the past at my other site.
Shipping to Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, and outside the U.S. : I do ship to these areas. Please note however that due to the time delivery takes I will ship by Priority Mail International. Shipping this way can be more costly however at times it has also taken 6 weeks to arrive to customers even shipping things in this manner. If you would like to know how much please contact me. I will need to know the item/s you want and shipping location.
I currently take paypal, money order or cashier's check. I do NOT accept Personal checks. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please note paying by paypal with an echeck takes a week to clear. Also if you are sending me payment by mail that will always delay shipment.
Paying by money order or cashier's check: Please contact me to let me know this is how you are paying. That way you won't get payment reminders (unless after 5 days I haven't received it). I will also be aware to keep an eye out for the arrival of your payment. Once I receive it you will be contacted and informed.
