The Little Christmas Tree by Andrea Skevington


The Little Christmas Tree by Andrea Skevington

'Deep in the forest, one dark night, it was so cold the stars were shivering in the sky...' A dark storm is brewing, and the woodland animals sense danger. The grand, proud trees, oak, sycamore and birch, are determined to fight the storm wind. But the little fir tree knows that it is more important to shelter the frightened birds and animals. When the storm wreaks destruction, she alone is unharmed. And far away, that very night, a baby is born in a manger. The angels who herald the baby's birth scatter shimmering stars as they pass the forest. On which tree do the stars rest? The little fir tree, the one who had shown love. A beautiful picture book with a sparkly surprise on the last page!
