Nichols, Lori Maple and Willow’s Christmas Tree PICTURE BOOK Nancy Paulsen Books, 2016 (Penguin). $16.99 Content: G.
Maple and Willow get a real Christmas tree for the holidays. They bring it into the house and decorate it to quickly find out that Maple is allergic. The girls decorate a tree outside and try to keep their spirits up, but Willow blames Maple that they can’t have a tree. When Willow goes to bed she feels bad that she hurt her sister’s feelings, so she gets out of bed and decorates a ladder with all of their tree ornaments and both girls are delighted.
Maple and Willow are the cutest characters and this book is as adorable as the other books by Lori Nichols. The illustrations are so sweet and their relationship is heartwarming. This is a fun addition to your Christmas collection.
