Every child should have a Christmas Stocking. This selection of poems for children has been made by poet George Szirtes and makes a delightful gift – something to read at bedtime as the excitement of Christmas approaches, or to be shared afterwards as a reminder of the laughter and fun.

From a trip to the panto (hissing and booing essential!) to a first uncertain encounter with Santa, the poems celebrate the special traditions of Christmas that are relished by children of all ages.

\"Santa Claus is coming
To the village hall,
I'm going to see Santa Claus
And I won't cry at all.\"
- from 'Santa Claus' by Gabriel Fitzmaurice

Poems by Gabriel Fitzmaurice, Walter de la Mare, John Mole, Rachel Rooney and George Szirtes.
