Christmas Poems for Kids
Children just love Christmas poems that rhyme and if you read the poems to them often enough, they will know the words by heart in no time. Wouldn't it be funny if your kid could recite a little rhyming poem at Christmas Eve?
My Dad, who was an artist, used to make little books for me and my sisters when we were young. Main thing were his illustrations accompanied by four line rhymes. The story I included in this article is about a collision between (the more European known) Saint Nicolaas and (the more world wide known) Santa Claus on a very dark night in December.
Christmas is such a good time to start learning kids about poetry, because there are many books with poems that rhyme for kids available. I've collected a lot of good and funny Christmas poetry books for children on this page, so I hope you can find a little Christmas Gift for your kid.

On Christmas Eve we gather around
A little Christmas Gift from me for you
On Christmas Eve we gather around,
the sparkling tree, dressed up in light.
Awaiting Santa who comes from far,
with lovely gifts on reindeer's flight.
We sing the songs of Jesus' Birth,
so far away from where we live.
A star showed us the truthful path
and peace the gift we ought to give.
On Christmas Eve we gather around
with family, friends and Him above.
It shouldn't be two days each year,
that only then we show our love.
I've just written this poem for you and you're free to use it if you like it, but give me credit please.

A funny Christmas Poem for Kids
It happened on a night, a very dark night...
My father was an Artist. (he passed away in 1984) and he liked to write little poems for me and my two sisters when we were kids. He illustrated these little poems with adorable drawings and made them into booklets. I still have them. As they were originally written in Dutch, I translated the poems into English, but I might have twisted the English grammar a little here and there, in order to get it all in a four line stanza. So please forgive me if I did.
A Funny Christmas Story in Rhyme
Kids reciting Poetry on Youtube - one is never too young to learn
This one is not exactly for kids as well as about kids. and I thought it was too special not to let you hear and see it. I thought it was beautiful.
Another funny video to look at is this one Autumn Leaves I wouldn't be surprised if this young boy is becoming an actor when he grows up.
Then I found several performances of the same poem "Once Upon a Twice".
A little girl 'Sage' recites Robert Frost:
Children love to recite poems
I think it's very important to bring poetry to young kids, starting with short little rhymes about the things they encounter on a daily base. Some think it's not important and that there will be enough time to do that.
Learn your kids to be creative
In stead of reading poetry to your kids, you can also write poetry with your kids. Learn them words that sound the same and learn them then to use them in small sentences. They get the hang of it very quickly and they just love it to find new words that rhyme.
