The Lonely Christmas Tree by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros

lonely christmasThe Lonely Christmas Tree by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros. Pub. Bloomsbery, 2019.

Christmas can be a lonely time for people who long to be part of what is known as Christmas spirit, being with people, sharing food and drink and exchanging gifts.

This is about a lonely pine tree that was once part of a big forest now cut down. The lonely tree watches all the celebrations from his lonely snow covered slope and yearns to belong.

Then on the eve of Christmas his life changes but you will have to read the story to find out why. Check out the mystery of what happened to the little bird.

Beautifully told in poetic verse that mimics “T’was the night before Christmas“.

Lovely story for juniors. The illustrations are superb as little tree sits on his lonely slope and the joy of Christmas comes alive with that jolly rotund red costumed gentleman and his reindeer.
