Praise for Tomie dePaola's Christmas Tree Book

"a story in which a mom and dad share with their two kids historical tidbits about Christmas trees, lights, and ornaments, the book allows readers to see the family’s progress from cutting a tree down through setting a star on its top. Modest dimensions and a subdued palette make this one a refreshingly low-key offering for the season."The Horn Book
