Needles the Forgotten Christmas Tree by Richard Wagner #review #christmas #childrensbooks #picturebooks #hope


The world is not always a perfect place. Needles, a scraggly little tree, must endure criticism, laughter, and setbacks to realize his goal of becoming a beautiful Christmas tree. 

My review:

This sweet book is about hope and being you in spite of what others may think of you. This book is about determination to shine even if others don't say you are good enough. Believe in yourself, like the little tree,Needles,did! He was good enough to be the best Christmas tree ever for a little girl who needed to have a bit of Christmas when things were not so bright for her. He had hope that he would be even when it seemed lost. He gave hope to the little girl and it was important to her.

I honestly almost teared up and the loveliness of such a simple tale. The illustrations only enhanced a sweet, sweet story. I think you will love it too and it should be a holiday tradition to read.

5 Christmas stars!
