About the Author
Colleen Monroe loves writing books for children, although it is a path that she never envisioned for herself, having spent many years in advertising. It wasn't until she had children that she decided to write her first book. She shamelessly uses her three children for ideas and as impromptu editors and critics.
Michael Monroe uses his award-winning illustrations to bring every story he works on to life. He feels a great responsibility to make each book the best it can be for the children reading it. He enjoys painting the books but also loves traveling the country doing presentations at schools where he teaches children about being an artist and about following their dreams. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The story tells of a sad tree who so wishes to be a Christmas tree and how his dear friends help him feel proud and special by a simple act of kindness.
You will read this book year-round and it will become a favorite Christmas story as it is in our home.
The illustrations are beautiful, but the message is just as important. I read it to my grandchildren and they almost cried, until the end, when they yelled with delight at the perfectly complete and timed ending. This book is now a holiday ritual for our family. I recommend this book to all who love the spirit of Christmas, regardless of religion.
