Format: Hardcover
This is a perfectly charming book for all ages - I see it as a plausible analogy of how decorated Christmas trees began. The heavy pages make them easy for small hands to turn, and the clear illustrations, along with the embossing, add both visual and tactile delight. The story line is simple enough for very young children to follow yet contains a haunting mythic quality appropriate for older people. While I've purchased this for two grandchildre, a number of my adult friends are also receiving it from me this year as an option to the standard ego-driven coffee-table book!

Format: Hardcover
Caroline Repchuck has written a christmas fable for all religions, races or creeds. It is simple in it's form, but abundant in it's sence of wonder. Our 2 year old daughter insists on constant rereadings of it. It has become a real family favourite, and quickly takes on the characteristics of something much older and wiser than most modern childrens books. Buy it. Yes there is a serious tone, but speaking it aloud makes one feel like a wise old inuit shaman passing pearls of infinate and ancient wizdom down to his loved ones. A classic, and beautifully illustrated too.

I'm 11 years old and will read it to a group of 1st graders at my school. I really liked the book especially all the colors against a white background and bumpy texture of the pages. The pictures are great too. It shows how each of the animals gave gifts to make a Christmas Tree for them to share. I think the 1st graders will really like it, I did!

As a Youth Services Librarian, I have the privilege of viewing lots of great materials. This book, however, was a delight to feel as well as to see! A wonderful story about community at Christmas, Snow Tree reminds the reader of the importance of sharing and the beauty that can come from such sharing. The pages of this book are textured and are a very inviting feature. Although there are lots of holiday books out there, I truly believe that Repchuk's Snow Tree is a worthy addition to holiday collections everywhere!

Luckily we ran across this book at a local charity store and I'm so thankful we did. My 4 year old listens intently, touching the pages as this lovely story unfolds. The illustrations are beautiful and lifelike. Simply gorgeous. The embossed pages are a sensory treat to compliment a warm story. This one is a new favorite in our house.

The Snow Tree has become a holiday favorite at our house. The textures and colors appeal to both my 18 month old son and four year old daughter. We love nature. The wildlife in three dimensions brings us right into the forest.

This book has the most beautiful illustrations and a simple, meaningful story that the youngest reader/listener will enjoy. Very strange that the one star reviewer thought it "creepy."

Format: Hardcover
So many children's stories have bland, predictable stories, but not this one. The story really holds your attention as it builds to the ending with a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. It's a great introduction to colors as each animal brings an ornament of a different color and describes something that is that color. It's also a good animal book since it shows many forest animals. The pages have are embossed with texture so it really engages the child. The illustrations are very well done and not at all cartoony like some kids books. Overall, this book is definitely worth the money and I think it's a 5 star children's book.
