A Wish to Be a Christmas Tree By Colleen Monroe-Book Review

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this delightful Christmas Book for the first time this year. I loved it! It has a tender story about a tree that is never chosen by humans to be their Christmas tree. Year after year he's been passed by.

The tree is devastated again one year as he is once again not chosen by any family. His animal friends decide to let him know how much they love him and appreciate how much the tree has helped the animals through the year.They also decide to make him "their" Christmas Tree in the forest. It has a happy ending of course when the tree feels so loved by his animal friends.

Yes, it's one of those books that made me cry as I read it to 2nd graders. That has happened several times through the years.

This is a book that should be in every family's Christmas book collection. I know it's going to join mine.

  1. I hadn't heard of this one before. Sounds like a touching story and one that is great for all ages. Thanks for sharing. I will have to look for it. :)

  2. You should Jess. I love stories like this that teach children about having compassion for others.
