Summary
As the smallest tree seedling grows, she thinks about all the possibilities open to her even if she isn't chosen to be a Christmas tree. The yearning of this seedling is really the yearning that we all feel: the impatience of children waiting to grow up, the frenzied yearning of adults to accomplish ever more. The seedling in Janie Jasin's inspirational story is impatient, too, longing for the day when she will be tall enough and beautiful enough to become a Christmas tree. Full color. This simply written children's book is anything but simple. It's not only the tale of a young tree seedling growing into a tall & strong grownup tree, but the story of a world of possibilities all woven together through the belief of an almighty creator. The young seedling has her sights set on becoming the tallest, strongest & most beautiful Christmas tree. But as the seedling starts to grow she learns to appreciate the things around her. She comes to realize that there are endless possibilities. This can be enjoyed more upon reflection than at first glance. The tree says "I will think about how wonderful it is to grow." Surely a lesson we all need to sit & ponder now & again. Jasin introduces faith in a way that is not intimidating & all-encompassing. She uses the story of a seedling starting to grow to express that a foundation of faith can enable a strong & healthy development in life. Enhancing the words of "The Littlest Christmas Tree" are vibrant illustrations that are sure to capture the hearts of the child in your life. While the title & illustrations suggest that this book should be read at Christmas time (indeed, it can be appreciated anytime of the year.) Offered also with a CD of piano orchestration & the author reading with voice & music as soft as falling snow. 19.95
