Amazing Peace

A Christmas Poem

Publisher: Schwartz & Wade
Celebrate Christmas with the joyous poetry of the incomparable Maya Angelou.

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. In this simple story, a family joins with their community—rich and poor, black and white, Christian, Muslim, and Jew—to celebrate the holidays.

This special package includes an audio CD of the author reading the poem aloud.
