Amazing Peace: A Christmas Poem : 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, Christian, Muslim, and Jew - to celebrate the holidays. Includes a CD of Maya Angelou reading the poem.
