Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
The tree in the meadow stands all alone,/ With fir-needle leaves and tiny cones,/ One family comes when the night is still,/ To decorate the tree for the animals fill./ Tangerines, apples, millet, seeds with honey,/ Strings of popcorn and berries cost little money./ The tree is lovely in Dad's lantern-light,/ "Oh, please, dear animals, come tonight./ But if they don't, we've completed our mission./ This tree is our gift to them, our yearly tradition." My poetic review provides the gist for a gem of a Christmas book . It may inspire your family to begin a special yearly tradition. 1995 (orig.

    Excellent teaching book

    This is an excellent book for elementary aged students. This teaches them to be kind to others (including animals) and to not just think of ourselves on Christmas.

    Family Favorite

    The family pictured in this delightful children's book show their concern for birds and animals on Christmas Eve by preparing popcorn, seed and fruit treats to decorate a tree in the woods. They then enjoy hot chocolate while singing Christmas carols. My grandchildren have enjoyed acting out this story each Christmas Eve for the last 17 years. It's a tradition I believe they'll continue with their own children. The Bunting/Rand team have produced a winning story of family togetherness, with text and illustrations working very well together to create a family classic.
