A Childrens Christmas Book titled “The Perfect Christmas”
The three long-needled pine trees grew up together on a Christmas tree farm in North Carolina, nestled between the Elbow and Shoehorn mountains. All three dream of becoming beautiful Christmas trees.
Marshall is a perfect tree: tall, well-shaped, and with beautiful branches. Barney and Butch aren’t quite so lucky. Barney has a large bald spot in his branches. Butch is short and stocky. When Christmas comes, Butch and Barney are sure their friend will be sold first—and so is Marshall.
When an accident leaves Marshall as imperfect and different as Butch and Barney, the three friends are sure it will take a miracle for even one of them to become a decorated Christmas tree. Fortunately for these three very special trees, Christmas is a time for miracles.
Written by Patricia L. Christian, The Perfect Christmas reminds children that, even when they feel different or less than perfect, others may see them as special and strong.
This book is beautifully illustrated by Joanna Pasek who is a renowned artist from Poland.
