    Highly recommended for children of all ages

    I purchased two copies of this book for each of my grandsons, ages 2 and 4. The story is simple and easy to follow for the 2 year old, yet filled with meaning that our 4 year old (and older children) can understand. The text on each page is not lengthy; small children will not lose interest. Additionally, the story holds the interest of older children as well. The illustrations are beautiful and lend extra spark to the story. This is a lovely book, historically based, and the story is directly linked to the book's afterword regarding the work of Habitat for Humanity. I hearly recommend this book to parents, grandparents, godparents, and teachers!

    I highly recommend The Carpenter's Gift for ages 8 to adult.

    As an artist the trailer sold me first. I was also familiar with the lighting of the Rockefeller Center tree at Christmas. After my book arrived I found incredible art work and a heart-warming, honest story that I couldn't wait to read to my grandchildren, 2 boys and one girl (8-11 years). I saw an opportunity to teach them about giving, in current times and always, because of the link to Habitat for Humanity. They loved it.

    My children love this story and especially how it relates to the actually Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center and Jim LaMarche (the illustrator) is one of our favorites - the pictures are breathtaking! Great book for anyone for the holidays.

    Highly Recommended

    It's a children's book and I'm a senior citizen, but I'd seen an except of this book along with a story on the illustrator in Habitat for Humanity's magazine and I knew I wanted to read the story and see each illustration. Instead of getting a printed copy I got it as an eBook for my color NOOK. I was not disappointed. It's a wonderful story and the illustrations are just gorgeous.

    Sweet story

    I love the message of this story. A good book to help today's children connect with a modern day symbol of Christmas spirit.
