    1. A sweet and gorgeous picture book about a little fir tree that fell sideways and did not have a chance to grow until a young kid picks it up and it finds its way in the world.Beautiful, 3d foldout drawing in the middle. Cute and Joyful!


    2. Χρειαζόμουν οπωσδήποτε κάτι Χριστουγεννιάτικο μιας και φέτος δε διάβασα κάτι τέτοιο και το ‘χω παράδοση τα τελευταία χρόνια να πιάνω τουλάχιστον 1 βιβλίο που να ασχολείται με τις γιορτές. Οπότε αυτό το πολύ μικρό και πολύ cute βιβλιαράκι ήταν αυτό ακριβώς που χρειαζόμουν.Ακ [...]


    3. A little tree never has a chance. Poorly planted, the wind blows it into its neighbor, where they become entangled. We learn it wants to go where the tallest and best trees end up—a rather lofty desire. Instead, the tree goes to a small store along with its entangled mate. The store owner sells the big tree and is about to throw the little tree away when a young boy asks to have it. The boy plants the tree inside a discarded cardboard box and places it in front of his stoop, much to the little [...]



    4. I received this book for free from the publisher in return for a review.It's Christmas Eve and all the fir trees have found a home except for one poor and crooked little tree. But then someone comes who doesn't mind that this tree doesn't look like the othersThis is quite a large book, A4 in height and slightly wider than A4 it has thick non-glossy pages with beautiful illustrations. This is a lovely tale showing the true Christmas spirit. The little fir tree has a terrible start and doesn't gro [...]


    5. There was once a little Christmas Tree that when he was planted with all the other trees, was planted carelessly. And so over the years as the tree started growing, it didn’t grow as big as the other trees, and he grew wayward.When he was taken to the shop to be sold, no-one wanted the tree, until a little homeless boy asked could he have it. The little boy brought hope to the tree, and with some love, and decorations, the tree looked beautiful and was happy again. That was until Christmas was [...]


    6. First sentence: A forest of Christmas trees stretching over the hills. That's where the story begins. There the little fir tree was planted, but planted carelessly, so that when the wind blew strong it fell sideways onto its neighbor and had no chance to grow.Premise/plot: This is the story of a 'crooked' and 'unwanted' Christmas tree. He is wanted. He is even needed by a young boy, a homeless boy, who plants the tree in a cardboard box, and prepares another box to be his bed for the night. Soon [...]


    7. Huddy, Delia The Christmas Eve Tree, illustrated by Emily Sutton. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick, 2016. $17.The little, stunted fir tree is unsure that anyone will want to take him home. Little does he know the wonderful things that are awaiting him.I admit – and you should admit it too – I thought this was a rip off of a classic Christmas book. Instead, Huddy takes a whole new look a little trees that have been left behind on Christmas Eve and creates a delightful new tale.Pre-K, EL (K-3) – ESS [...]


    8. This is a really interesting picture book about Christmas. I like the story line about the little tree who could, but the tree's interaction with people in the book is what complicated my feelings about it. I appreciate that the book doesn't overly romanticize homelessness or create "Christmas fix," but several story lines were left open and could have use a little more development. The illustrations are by far my favorite part. They are stunning.


    9. A story of hope centered around an unwanted little fir tree who is given a chance at life by a homeless boy. A great Christmas story for children. The illustrations are wonderful, especially the pages with the shop window and the Christmas Eve city scene.


    10. This book captured my heart. It contains the sweetest spirit of Christmas available in book form. Beautiful illustrations, a straightforward depiction of homelessness, and a triumphant ending full of love and belonging. The best.


    11. A feel good story about the life of a not so favored pine tree. Well told and very sweet.The illustrations are marvelous.


    12. #readathon17 Ένα βιβλίο που διαδραματίζεται τα Χριστούγεννα Bought this to give as a gift and I read it before I sent it off. A very sweet book with wonderful illustration!



    13. This sweet story would be a great story to read to children around Christmas time to make them think about the less fortunate and get them into the giving, Christmas spirit.


    14. Unlikely Christmas story of a crooked bare tree and a young boy with hopes of a joyful Christmas even in the worst of circumstances.



    15. A really lovely read in a Christmas setting with lovely messages about hope and kindness. The illustrations are beautiful too.


    16. I feel a little conflicted about this book. There are lots of positives, such as fabulous illustrations full of colour, animals and nature that really jump off the page. But I also found the story to be a little unusual.This is the story of the last tree on Christmas Eve. The scraggly, crooked looking tree that people kind of dismiss for not being beautiful enough - the "more dead than alive" tree as it is affectionately described in this book. But the tree somehow makes it through the kindness [...]


    17. Nice story, beautifully illustrated. I liked the overall message of "hope," but I wish the reveal on the last page had been a little easier to spot. (I had to be pointed to it.) I also wish that somebody on that Christmas Eve would have tried to help the little boy, but I suppose that's maybe an extra punch of realism to the story.


    18. Pretty illustrations reminiscent of retro 1950s - 1970s children's books color the pages of this story that is timeless (sadly). A homeless boy takes the last spindly Christmas tree to his home under a bridge. There, he decorates it with candles. People join him in song and the city comes together in celebration.


    19. The story had a lot of potential, but I feel like it would have been much stronger if the story had ended on Christmas Day OR had shown what happened to the homeless boy. Illustrations are lovely and whimsical, and the text is sparse, so it would be a good read aloud.


    20. A heart-warming holiday read! One of my favorite books read this holiday season!My full review can be read at NY Foodie Family:nyfoodiefamily/christmas-e



    21. Homeless boy takes a puny, unwanted Christmas tree to his cardboard box shelter, an act that has many unexpected, far-reaching effects.




    22. How can you not love a story about a little tree that no one wants and then a young boy finds the tree. Oh it is such a great story.
