    Book Description:
    The wonder of Christmas never ceases. Each year the holiday comes and its story seems fresh and new. The ways of telling about the very first Christmas are as many and as varied as the stars in the sky. And so it was for Langston Hughes, who recounted those long-ago events in six different ways — in live poems he wrote and in one he translated from the Spanish.
    In this memorable book, these six poems are simply and movingly illustrated by Ashley Bryan. That Christmas is for everyone — young and old, black and white, rich and poor — has never been more clearly shown. Though African American children — and adults — will find the book a special one for them, everyone who takes time to enjoy the book will come away with a new understanding of the holiday.
    Ashley Bryan has long been known for his interest in and illustration of African American spirituals and poetry. Here he puts his gifts of illustration to work in a way that seems to reflect his dedication to both.
