The Runaway Christmas Tree
The Runaway Christmas Tree is a delightful addition to the holiday ebook line-up. It is a soon to be Christmas classic.
The Kent family wants to purchase a real Christmas tree this year. When they finally pick one from Nick’s Magic Christmas Tree Grove, they get more than what they bargained for. They wanted a real tree, but just how does one define “real”? That is precisely what the Kent family is about to find out!
“It’s a fine day in the grove,” Nick said to the tree’s mother and father as they watched the family get closer and closer.
“Stand up straight!” The tree’s mother said. “You’ll never be chosen this Christmas if you continue to slouch.”
“He’ll never be ready,” the tree’s father told Nick as the family got even closer.
“Oh, I think he will,” said Nick, giving the little tree a loving pat on his back bristles.
“And what about the code?” The tree’s father persisted.
“He’ll do just fine,” Nick retorted. “Don’t worry. And I’ll be here if he needs me.”
“Why do I have to become a Christmas tree any way?” The young tree asked with a sigh.
“Because it is what you were grown to do,” his mother whispered, straightening out his bristles.
“Douglas Elmwood Pine the 3rd, I won’t have such talk under my sky, young man,” his father said sternly. “Your grandfather was an extraordinary Christmas tree, and although I have never been chosen, I have always wanted something better for you.”
Fantastic! Fantastic! Fantastic!
This is great story for everyone!!! I could not stop reading it!!! The christmas tree reminds me of how we can be loaded down with the cares and pressures of life. And the burdens that others place on us without knowing. When we can't sustain the burden, we can't react like the christmas tree and run away from our problems. This story is a great lesson for us all!!! It teaches us to seek wise counsel, come face to face with our problems, and open the lines of communication. I also enjoyed the great illustrations!!! For her first book, Ms.d.Washington Jones has a sure winner!!! I'm looking forward to her next book!!! Maybe even a sequel!!!
A Great Christmas Story
A GREAT Christmas story that I could easily see becoming a classic! It is certainly a new and refreshing story with a storyline that I haven't heard before! A great read for both parents and children during the holiday season!
I really enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it to anyone who loves the holiday season. Its good to know we have great writers coming back into play, long overdue. FYI I read this book about five times already.LOL
