Book Review: One Little Christmas Tree

Life is good for the trees on Carl's Christmas Tree Farm. They are all looking forward to the excitement of the Christmas season.

One Little Christmas Tree, by The Curto Family and Rusty Fischer, tells the story of how one small tree finds the true meaning of Christmas. This children's picture book tells the story of how little Alfred waits patiently until he grows tall enough to be real live Christmas tree.

Children will love the excitement of visiting a Christmas Tree Farm and choosing a special tree to take home and decorate for Christmas.

Life On a Christmas Tree Farm
Alfred is a very small tree on Carl's Christmas Tree Farm. He stands next to Mr. Phipps, the tallest tree on the farm. Mr. Phipps tells Alfred that some day he will inherit a wonderful family who will make him the center of their Christmas celebrations. Alfred can hardly wait to be a Christmas tree!

December comes around and many of Alfred's friends are loaded onto the tops of cars and taken away. One day, a family stops in front of Mr. Phipps. They love him and he is soon gone. It was a sad and lonely Christmas for Alfred that year.

Several years pass and Alfred is still living on the tree farm. He is now taller than most of the trees around him. One Christmas Eve, a young boy comes walking among the trees. The boy doesn't seem very happy and is not even interested in looking at the trees. Alfred knows that it is his job to be this little boy's Christmas tree!

Alfred comes up with a unique idea to get the boy's attention and to persuade the family to choose him as their Christmas tree!

My Thoughts
Many children do not have the opportunity to visit a Christmas Tree Farm. This book will give parents an opportunity to tell children about how trees are grown especially to be used as Christmas trees.

This is a delightful Christmas story for children of all ages. The color illustrations  complement the text and give the trees in the story unique personalities. I read this book on my Kindle and the full-screen illustrations and text are a great fit for the ereader.
The end of the story is poignant and sweet...Alfred fulfills his life's purpose by bringing happiness and joy to a special little boy. Recommended for children of all ages.

FYI ~ I ordered this ebook from Amazon.Com. I received this book as a FREE download for my Kindle. Please check the price before ordering.
