When a Christmas tree is needed…

Maple and Willow are sisters in search of the perfect tree.  They find it – or at least they think they do – and it’s a beauty.  There’s just one problem.  Maple is allergic.  The illustrations are cheerful, bright and detailed, and the characters are sweet.  Personally, I want their jammies.

It reminds me a little of Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree, a favorite from my childhood which continues to delight me these many years later.  Find a copy if you’ve never seen it – it’s a classic – and super fun to read with younger kids.

    I remember Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree! They kept lopping off parts of the tree until there was almost nothing left! That was a cute story. Thanks!
