The Tree That's Meant to Be

Written by Yuval Zommer

The Tree That's Meant to Be Synopsis

A gorgeous Christmas picture book that's destined to become a festive classic. A little fir tree is too small and too imperfect to be chosen at Christmas time. But being left alone in the forest brings more rewards than the tree could ever have hoped for . . . This is a charming and classic-feeling Christmas picture book with a heartfelt message about love and embracing what makes us different. Families will love sharing the story and talking about kindness, generosity, and the true meaning of Christmas. Award-winning author Yuval Zommer puts the living world at the heart of his powerful storytelling.

The Tree That's Meant to Be Press Reviews

Zommer's illustrations capture piney textures and manage to imbue the scraggly arboreal underdog with heart and personality. Finely brushed textures are applied with care throughout, conveying a sense of richness. * Publishers Weekly * A lyrical tale which holds great hope and warmth. * Sarah Yewman, Picture Book Blogger * The Tree That's Meant to Be by Yuval Zommer chronicles the life of a fir tree, too wonky and small to be cut down for Christmas, that is decorated by characterful woodland creatures and enjoyed by children. Internal rhymes, a simple text, glitter and atmospheric scenes make this picture book a treat. * Sunday Times *
