LoveReading View on The Christmas Eve Tree

This absolutely beautiful book will really instil the true Christmas spirit in all who read it. Planted carelessly, the little fir tree has no chance to grow, so stays small and stunted. No wonder that it’s left in the shop after all the other trees are taken to decorate homes. But something special happens and the little tree is at the centre of a real Christmas celebration and, almost miraculously, is given a chance to grow again. The story is one of hope and new beginnings, and Emily Sutton’s illustrations, full of details that children will love, have a wonderful almost folk art feel. Buy it and bring home the real magic of Christmas!  ~ Andrea Reece

The Christmas Eve Tree Synopsis

A delightful midi-edition of the bestselling picture book The Christmas Eve Tree, including a stunning pop-up - coming just in time for Christmas!A magical midi-edition of Delia Huddy and Emily Sutton's poignant, exquisitely illustrated Christmas story, with a beautiful pop-up cityscape. When the ugly little fir tree is taken to the city, no one wants to buy him; they prefer the big tall trees. But a homeless boy asks the shopkeeper if he can take the tree, and down by the river in a cardboard box, decorated with a few candles, the tree finds itself at the centre of a magical Christmas Eve it will never forget. With a stunning pop-up of a snowy city skyline, this is a Christmas tale with a classic feel but a modern theme at its heart.
