This is a wonderful, sweet Christmas story about the true meaning of Christmas Trees. The story is great and will bring tears to the eyes. The illustrations are perfect for the story. I love the trees eyes and his smile. I think this story could become a story to be read every Christmas. This story shows what can happen to Christmas trees over time. I received a copy of this book from ireadbooktour for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
I give this book a five out of five stars.
