by Ursula Moray WilliamsThis is a very nicely written book about caring, compassion and what the true meaning of Christmas is all about. I could see this book be one you could read to your family during Christmas Eve-Day. A poor family doesn't have much to give their children but the dad brings home a very small tree. They set it up after the children go to bed; but they worry that it won't be 'good' enough because all they had to decorate it was homemade cookies the mother made. But they knew in their hearts that their children were kindhearted and know that the tree would be enough. But the tree heard the parents talking and that night the tree slips out of his pot and out the door. He encounters goblins, wolves, a stranger, baby angels, and St Nicholas in the woods and have to give all he has in exchange for things to put on himself for his children. In the end he looks ragged and embarrassed at himself for looking so poorly. He asks St Nicholas to take all the gifts off himself and put it on another tree to deliver that to his children. But St. Nicholas knowing what the tree did and felt touched him with his magic and made his needles all grow back and took him back to his family.
