This title features sweet illustrations and simple language that bring the Christmas holiday to life for the youngest of children. At Christmas time, a tree from the outside comes inside, just waiting to be decorated. And some of the tree's ornaments are inspired by outdoor things, too - a snowflake, a ball, a bird, and a star. Spare language and luminous collage paintings offer a fresh, inviting look at well-loved traditions. This title is perfectly priced for holiday promotions. It is a very young concept book that intersperses real items with tree ornaments. It features multicultural cast of characters.

Candlewick Press, Somerville, Massachusetts 2009.
This is a small book, printed with bright colors on heavy duty cardboard pages. The author, David Martin has a delightful idea. He starts with a single word and single picture: tree, then a bird. Then, a bird in the tree. Then, a mouse...and then a mouse in the tree and you see that the mouse in the tree is a Christmas ornament. As you read, page by page, the clever idea begins to build up and you clearly see that the BALL becomes a bright Christmas ornament. Page after page of brightly colored illustrations.
But, then you come to the picture of the "HOUSE" where red-cheeked children have pressed their faces against the window. Turning to the last page, you reach the climax of the book: the tree is in the house, and has become a glorious Christmas tree, decorated with many of the items seen on the previous pages of the book. The people sit around with hot chocolate; they are smiling and warming themselves in front of the fireplace. Some are placing more decorations on the wonderful tree, or placing presents underneath the tree.
This is a great book, just the right size for a stocking stuffer. The words and the illustrations build up into a nice Christmas story. The book would be an attractive addition to any Christmas library.
