Review in the Midwest Book Review
"A Tree's Christmas: A Talking Tree's Story of its Christmas Adventures" is an inspirational children's chapter book with heartwarming appeal for all ages. Narration begins and ends in the words of a 13 year old girl who may or may not have dreamed part of the story. The Christmas tree itself is the gentle story's star, and even though other bigger trees in the forest have ridiculed or belittled the tree, it is true to its own story and attests to the virtue of perseverance and fidelity in the face of hardship. "A Tree's Christmas" deals with many relevant themes; the circle of life and death, family love and support, and enduring hard times to remember joy in the end. "A Tree's Christmas" will be a treasured gift to share with a loved one, child or adult. Its lessons of a brief life fully lived in gratitude for the wonder of creation are to be respectfully passed on to new generations.
