Friday Reads: The Little Christmas Tree by Dugald Steer

When I was shopping for holiday books for my girls, I stumbled across this one in the Bargain Books at Chapters.

The Little Christmas Tree tells the story of the Christmas Tree at the North Pole.  Every year, the toys (who are magically alive) decorate the little christmas tree and the sing songs aroun dit.  Then, on Christmas eve, the tree becomes sad when all of the toys go off to their new homes.   This Christmas, the tree thinks it will be the same as every year, but the toys have a surprise fo rit.   Toys from all over the world are treking to the north pole to visit the tree.

It is a really sweet story and my girls truly enjoy it each time I read it to them (they also really loved it when Papa read it to them)


For $5, I'd say it was well worth it.  My favourite part is how the story finishes by telling the child that if their favourite teddy goes missing on Christmas eve, it must be because it is heading to the North Pole to be with the little Christmas Tree
