Day 2, book 2

Tonight's book was, The Legend of the Christmas Tree by Rick Osborne, illustrated by Bill Dodge.

Dad is worried that the true meaning of Christmas is being lost with all the decorating and baking and gift giving that this season is filled with.  As the family searches for their perfect Christmas tree this year, Dad learns the symbolism behind many of our traditions and begins to embrace the Christmas season with a renewed heart.

This book is one of those that makes my kids laugh whenever we read it. It is sappy but what a great message it shares!

We read this one every year when we put up our Christmas tree. ;-)
