Christian Christmas Poems for Children

A collection of Christian Christmas poems for younger children. The poems retell various aspects of the Christmas story in verse form, providing a gentle reminder that Christmas is at heart a Christian festival, rather than a consumer fest. If you fancy reciting one of the poems at a Christmas service, recital or school concert, just drop Timmy a line at and you should get a meow in response. (In case you don't speak cat, meow means yes).
