One Little Christmas Tree by The Curto Family and Rusty Fischer
There is nothing more pleasant that settling down with your child at bedtime, when it is cold outside but toasty inside, to read a lovely little Christmas story before lights out. And so last night my three-year-old son (although the book is ideally for ages 4+), Elliot, and I read One Little Christmas Tree: A Children’s Christmas Picture Book.
Alfred is a young tree at Carl's Christmas Tree Farm in beautiful Spruce Creek, North Carolina. As all trees do, Alfred starts out with big hopes about being picked each Christmas to be a wonderfully decorated tree for the family he 'inherits.' Time passes and Alfred becomes disappointed that he has not been picked yet. To comfort him, his friend, Mr. Phipps, urges him to be patient and that one day he will be welcomed into a warm, inviting home for the perfect family.
Does Alfred get his wish? Well, you and your child will have to read it to find out!
My son and I found Alfred to be a most engaging and lovable character and the simple story arc and illustrations (which are charming) ensured complete attention throughout. I liked the book's themes of patience and the importance of belonging while my son was very, very pleased to see a smile finally erupt on what was an initially rather sad little tree (my son gets very upset when others are distressed).
One Little Christmas Tree: A Children's Christmas Picture Book is a festive treat ideal for ages 4+. With and engaging story and vibrant illustrations is it is sure to get both child and parent into the perfect Yule-tide spirit!
