The Little Fir Tree, words by Margaret Wise Brown, Art by Jim LaMarche

It’s Christmas time.
Outside, a father is heading into the snowy forest,
A little fir tree is waiting to find its place in the world.
Inside the warm log cabin, a boy is waiting for the magic of Christmas.
The seasons and years pass by and the little fir tree grows with the boy.
Every winter he is brought back to fill the house with its prickly green smell, then returned to the woods as soon as the snow melts.
What happens when a little fir tree grows too big to be a Christmas tree?
This forgotten book by master storyteller Margaret Wise Brown is seriously heartwarming and a pleasure to read aloud.
Splendid illustrations by Jim LaMarche take us into the most perfect, uncluttered Christmas setting, in a beautiful story of reconnection between Nature and Man.
