Overview


A Christmas book with a unique "snow globe" novelty on the cover- kids can flip the book upside-down and right-side-up to make the glitter and shapes float, fly, and decorate the Christmas tree!

When Mr. and Mrs. Bear find that their extra-big Christmas tree won't fit in their house, they cut off the top half and share it with Mr. Fox and his son saying, "We took our tree and made it two. One half for us, one half for you."
The Foxes love their new tree, but then they remember Old Rabbit, who lives alone. So the Foxes give half of their tree to Old Rabbit. And in turn, Old Rabbit gives part of his tree to a mouse family.

The cover of the book features a fabulous, tree-shaped gel pouch filled with sparkly, festive glitter and foil bells, stars, and more!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Mrs. Bear nags Mr. Bear because it is almost Christmas and they do not have a Christmas tree. He lumbers out into the forest and brings one home, but it is too big. He saws it in half, and realizes that the other half would serve as a perfectly good Christmas tree as well. Mr. Fox is delighted to receive the top of the bears' tree, which he and his son happily decorate. While admiring the tree, Mr. Fox remembers his friend Old Rabbit, who lives alone and does not have a tree. In turn, the Fox family cuts their tree in half to share. Old Rabbit continues the pattern, and saws off a portion for the mice who live under his floor. Four trees from one, and Santa knows to leave presents under all of them. The story is a sweet reminder of the joy of giving inherent in Christmas. Printed on heavy stock, the pages should withstand many readings. The book is packaged in a gimmicky manner, as a "Magical Snow Globe Book," with a gel-filled inset in the cover containing glitter and sequins. The snow globe has nothing to do with the story, and does not work very well to boot. 2005, Scholastic, Ages 3 to 7.

    Every year before Christmas Eve dinner, our family reads a children's book about Christmas (this year, my youngest niece was 4 and oldest nephew 9). I bought this book for the occasion because it made me cry in the bookstore when I was reading it. Four animal families share a Christmas tree - the spirit of the season. Everyone absolutely loved it and took turns reading it aloud for a wonderful memory that I'll always cherish.
