The Christmas Eve Tree
Written by Delia Huddy
Illustrated by Emily Sutton

Flap Copy Description:
When the ugly little fir tree is taken to the city, no one wants to buy him; they prefer the big tall trees. But a homeless boy asks the shopkeeper if he can take the tree, and down by the river in a cardboard box, decorated with a few candles, the tree finds itself at the center of a magical Christmas Eve it will never forget. A Christmas tale with a classic feel but a modern theme at its heart.

My Thoughts:
This little picture book - The Christmas Eve Tree - is packed full of holiday cheer. While the whimsical illustrations are exquisite, it is the story of the forgotten Christmas tree that will touch your heart. Ms Huddy's tale reminds us that just because a tree - or a person - might have problems, they still have great value & deserve a real chance. I highly recommend The Christmas Eve Tree to children of all ages!
