The Christmas Eve Tree

It's late on Christmas Eve, and a little fir tree is the only one left for sale. What a poor thing I am, the crooked, spindly tree thinks. But along comes a boy who doesn't seem to mind that the tree is neither tall nor straight, and it becomes an unforgettable Christmas for both of them. Author Delia Huddy and illustrator Emily Sutton have created a deeply moving story about the importance of hope and gratitude in the Christmas season that has all the hallmarks of a classic.
