Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
After counting down from five to one and learning who has purchased the trees, the reader discovers where the trees have gone. The trees are purchased by a millionaire, the mayor's wife, a fireman, a beauty queen. The tree salesman takes the last tree to a house where everyone has gathered with their trees to give a party for the children. Children will enjoy the side story in the illustrations depicting a person stringing lights on his house and people shopping at the toy store. There is a large black and white "Warning" on the cover to alert adults to the five small plastic trees glued onto the card stock pages and contained in die-cut circles. It explicitly states that this presents a choking hazard for children under 3 years old. However, the format and fingerplay style of the story make this most appropriate for children three and under. Except for the fireman, the people purchasing the trees are of little interest to small children. Who are the children at the party? Are they orphans? If not, where are their parents? Even the multicultural Christmas party with the pop-up tree cannot overcome the problems with this book. 2003, Price Stern Sloan, Ages 4 to 5.
