Warm, realistic pictures in colored charcoal bring a luminous glow to the pages. In fact, the illustrations are better than the text.
Never mind that the miracle at the end is somewhat forced. The tree lives on, returned to the forest, and the final scene leaves a warm-fuzzy feeling lingering with readers young and old.

The Little Fir Tree is our literature selection for school this week, I believe that we're 13 weeks into the curriculum for Memoria Press Kindergarten. It is a lovely story. Coming into this one, I was thinking it is a lovely cover illustration and I already know that I appreciate the poetic prose of Margaret Wise Brown, I expect to like it. I was right, this is a lovely story for Christmas. It is one of time past that is fun to point out the elements that date the illustrations such as the lamps and other items in the house. I had not read this before, but I'm delighted to add it to our pile of Christmas reads. It's beautiful. It is absolutely beautiful in illustration and imagery, the illustrations for my edition are by Jim LaMarche with a 2005 copyright, and while the story might be from 1954 it holds strong now. There is no commercialization or covering with presents, but family and friends and the importance of celebration together is powerful.
What I wasn't expected was to become teary-eyed and choked up while reading a children's picture book, but that is exactly what happened. The look on my girls faces when they went for the tree in the last scene, oh wow. What an experience. I definitely recommend this book! Especially for sharing hope with others.
I purchased this book for my school lists for Kindergarten and definitely recommend the purchase for others.
