Tony Medina asks readers to think of those whose Christmases may not be so bright in Follow-up Letters to Santa from Kids Who Never Got a Response, illus. by R. Gregory Christie. Poems written in the voices of (mostly) inner-city kids petition Santa with requests for everything from help with crack-addicted mothers to shelter for the homeless people around them.
