The Last Christmas Tree by Stephen Kerensky - ESSENTIAL

Krensky, Stephen The Last Christmas Tree, illustrated by Pascal Campion.  PICTURE BOOK.  Dial (Penguin), 2014.  $17.  Content: G.  

The little tree is not a tall, nor green, nor leafy as the other Christmas trees, but the hope in its heart to be someone’s tree is bigger than all the rest.  As the days to Christmas dwindle away, its hope for a home never wavers, until it is the final tree left.  Krensky does such a skillful job of personifying the little tree that I was ready to cry as it looked like no one wanted it and that it would be left as garbage.  Not giving anything away here.  I need this book for myself!
