The year our son was born, one of our lovely readers recommended the children’s book Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree to us. I always love getting book recommendations and this one did not disappoint. This charming story fast became a yearly tradition, a story we read frequently over the holiday season. I love everything about it: the adorable characters, the lilting rhythm of the rhyme, the illustrations and of course, most of all, the story itself. So, to whomever recommended this book – an enormous thank you! My children and I absolutely love it. RELATED: Holiday Gift Idea: Smithsonian Children’s Illustrated Atlas
So, if you’re looking for a Christmas treat for your little ones this year, definitely consider ordering a copy of Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree. It’s the perfect story to read all season long before chasing them up to bed to dream dreams of Santa.
From the publisher: Give the gift of holiday spirit with this classic picture book that celebrates how one Christmas tree brings joy to a whole forest of critters!
Christmas is here and Mr. Willowby’s tree has arrived. There’s just one big problem: The tree is too tall for his parlor! He cuts off the top so it will fit, and soon the top of that tree is passed along again and again to bring holiday cheer to all the animals in the forest.
Kids will love watching the tree move from home to home, and families will appreciate the subtle message of conservation and recycling, as the tree top spreads joy to all.
