    One thought on “The Scrawny Little Tree”

    1. Beautiful story of a poor young boy who purchases a scrawny little tree. A perfect Christmas tale of love, kindness and Christmas magic.

    2. In the long tradition of uplifting family Christmas tales with a positive message about human connectedness and the redemptive power of self-sacrificing love, The Scrawny Little Tree lays out a very nice story that meshes perfectly with the spirit of the holiday season. Considering that Christmas is all about the celebration of what a single act of unconditional love can do to change lives, I'd have to say that this book tunes into that theme with faithful, understated beauty, and will appeal to [...]

    3. The best new Christmas story I've read this year! My landlady made sure I'd read through it during this season and it warmed my heart. This was the perfect way to almost get into the spirit during those times when it's not so easy anymore.

    4. Sweet 1970 illustrated poem about the love of a tree for a boy, which then inspires the entire town to no longer neglect its needy.

    5. Reads a bit like "A Charlie Brown Christmas" in a Dr. Seuss-like rhyme style, but nowhere near as good a story.
