This is a beautiful Christmas themed book that has a noncommercial focus. I read it to my students every year as we discuss how we can share the message of Christmas with everyone. The children love the actions of the family as they bring Christmas to the woods, decorating a living, growing tree for the forest animals. Both story and illustrations are lovely. This book would appeal to children about 4 years old and up. My ten year old students seem to enjoy it very much year after year. I am happy to have a copy to add to our classroom library.
