The Christmas Tree That Changed The World: A North Pole Tradition by Cookie Claus is a fantastic kids' picture book. Meet Spruce, a young evergreen tree, and Holly, a spotted puppy. They are the best of friends and love to spend their days talking. One day, as Christmas approaches, they decorate Spruce as the first Christmas Tree of Kindness. Along the way, they learn much about life and have fun creating happy memories to keep forever.
The Christmas Tree That Changed The World by Cookie Claus is a lovely story with unique, colorful illustrations that bring the story to life before your eyes. It is a fun kids' story, but it also teaches important lessons, such as good deeds are always rewarded in some way and that just a few small acts of kindness can change the world. The wonderfully named Cookie Claus has given this story a great deal of thought. It is well-written in clear, easy language, perfect for its intended audience, and is a book that kids will want to read repeatedly, no matter the time of year. This may be a Christmas story, but the lessons are ones we can all learn at any time of the year, and it is the kind of story that helps kids remember those lessons easily. The characters are well-thought-out and fun; the story flows well and has a lovely ending. It is a story for all kids to enjoy, but I’m sure more than a few parents and grandparents will love it too.
