The Little Fir Tree


In The Little Fir Tree by Margaret Wise Brown, a little fir tree grows in a field by himself away from the other trees. One day, a man comes and carefully digs him up. The man carries the tree back to his home where he becomes a Christmas tree in the room of the man’s bedridden son. Each spring the man replants the tree, and each winter he brings the tree back to his home to help his son celebrate Christmas. One year, winter comes and the snow falls, but still the man does not come. The little tree is sad and lonely until he sees a light coming through the woods, and the joy of Christmas returns as the tree sees his boy walking towards him. Illustrations by award-winning artist Jim Lamarche elegantly capture the wonder and purity of this classic Christmas story.
