From Booklist

Gr. 5-8. For older children at Christmas, this lavishly illustrated anthology features a wide range of mainly British poets, including William Blake, John Donne, Ted Hughes, Charles Causley, Sylvia Plath, and Seamus Heaney. They write about the holiday from Advent to Christmas Eve and after: gifts, parties, mystery, the baby in the manger, the coming of the kings. The full-color pictures, by several artists, occasionally overwhelm the words, especially when the text is printed right on the artwork, and middle-grade students will need adult help with several of the more difficult poems. The collection will be most useful as a source for holiday sharing and reading aloud--at home, in the library, and in the classroom. Hazel Rochman

There is a nice selection of Christmas poems in this book. They are varied in authorship and style. Many are not readily available elsewhere.
