As we prepare to celebrate and rejoice the spirit of Christmas, a lonesome pine is adorned and transformed into a focus for our festivities. But in the ritual of taking down decorations, joy often turns to sadness as we say goodbye to the humble evergreen tree.What if the tree could be a part of the family all year round, and be able to thrive and grow as nature intended?Jenny Randell found a way for their beloved Christmas tree to remain close to them ‘forever’.. AND have a life and friends of its own!This delightfully illustrated, charming book tells the story of Jenny, her superhero brother Billy, their loving parents Frank and Sarah and a year in the life of their very own special tree!
This is the best children’s book I have read in years. Not only does it give a lovely warm insight into family life, much of which has wained in recent years, it is also educational. The children in the Randell family learn about the seasons, the environment, the weather conditions, but more importantly the meaning of friendship and a sense of belonging. I loved it and will buy another copy for the little ones in my family, as I couldn’t bear to part with my recent purchase!
I was gifted this book and have enjoyed sharing these beautiful stories with my children.
Such a lovely way to help young ones to connect to nature, and feelings about life and loving relationships.
