It is easy to get overlooked when the other trees on the lot are bigger, fuller, prettier. Just like it's easy to get overlooked in life. "But the little tree kept its hopes high. It wanted someone special, someone who was as excited about Christmas as it was." Keeping the faith, day in and day out, is so difficult when it doesn't seem like things are going to work out. But all of the loneliness and hurt melts away when love shows up. That's the message of this dear wonderful book by Stephen Krensky, with beautiful illustrations by Pascal Campion. The Last Christmas Tree truly stole my heart when I discovered it last week and continues to resonate in its poignancy. I think you'll love it, too.
