Synopsis

The Little Christmas Tree by Loek Koopmans

The little Christmas tree hates its sharp needles, and longs to have soft leaves like all the other trees. But will it be happier when its wish is granted? Perhaps it's not so bad being a little Christmas tree after all...This is a charming story about learning that the grass is not always greener on the other side. The perfect picture book for a cold winter's evening around the fireside.

Reviews

'The tale of the little pine tree who wanted to be anything other than what he was is beautifully told with clever illustrations in a traditional style. Each page depicts the same subject in the same place (a tree can hardly move around!) but Koopmans has managed to create a new feeling and energy by changing the surroundings on each page, making subtle use of colour and detail ... it is a lovely book to read aloud with young children ... This is a refreshing Christmas book with a difference, definitely one for the stocking!'

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
