The Curto Family has created a fantastic book for the Christmas Holiday. I really enjoyed reading this book with my 7-year-old. He was able to connect with Alfred’s feeling as we were reading the book together – which lead to a wonderful conversation. I also loved the eye-popping illustrations in the book. My Christmas Trees comes in a box, so it was extra special learning about Christmas tree farms. Side Note: One of my favorite things about reading Children books are a Solid Storyline & Beautiful illustrations. I recommend this book for all ages. 4 Stars

Alfred the Christmas tree was small. Families pass him by every year when they come to "Carl's Christmas Tree Farm" looking for the perfect Christmas tree. All the tall trees around him get picked one by one. Alfred wonders if he will ever be chosen and be able to make a family's Christmas special. This is a good story that teaches patience to young kids. The illustrations are cute, especially Alfred. I think the book is good for young kids, older kids might want a bit more to the story (like why the boy who picked Alfred was sad). I think the story would make a nice bedtime read-aloud especially for Christmas. **NOTE I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a delightful children's book that is full of wonderful illustrations that brings life to the little tree called Alfred. This is the perfect book for the holiday season and teaches us about patience and how being with your family is so special. I read the book on my Kindle Touch. Although the illustrations were in black and white they were so cute and detailed. All of my children have grown but I know they would have loved to read it.

Alfred is a cute little Christmas tree living at Carl’s Christmas Tree Farm. He is quite happy because he has lots of sun to enjoy, water and food to help him grow big and strong, and a good friend, Mr. Phipps, a tall, beautiful Christmas tree who lives right next to him. Alfred thinks all he has to do is grow big and tall, but Mr. Phipps explains to him that there is more to being a Christmas tree than simply trying to be the biggest, tallest tree on the farm. Alfred’s job is to make a family happy at Christmas. As Christmas approaches, Farmer Carl decorates his farm with lights to entice customers to stop and see his trees. Every day people come and buy trees, but they all want tall trees, not a little tree like Alfred. One day a family comes and buys Mr. Phipps; now Alfred is all alone. He is sad to see his friend go and spends that first Christmas all alone. Christmas time comes and goes, year after year, and no family ever stops to admire Alfred. But as time went by, something amazing was happening…Alfred was growing tall and majestic! Would he finally go home with a special family and more importantly, would Alfred finally understand what Mr. Phipps had told him so many years earlier; that being a Christmas tree is truly about making a family happy? This is a sweet story about one little tree who wants nothing more than to be loved by a special family. The ending is predictable but that’s exactly what we want in a story about Christmas – a happy ending that gives the reader a warm and fuzzy feeling. The illustrations are bright and lively and work well with the story. Alfred the Christmas tree is adorable and youngsters will be eager to learn whether he finally gets picked by a special family. Quill says: The perfect book to read to your youngster as you cuddle in bed, waiting for Santa’s arrival.
