Papa says “No Christmas tree this year,” because the family is going to be away from home visiting grandparents.
Mama is frazzled because the family has just moved into a new house in a foreign country and she needs to find the dishes, not the Christmas ornaments.
But ten-year-old Jack and four-year-old Maria know what is truly important about celebrating Christmas and get some help from a tree with a mind of its own.
Linda Cardillo survived three months in a hotel room in a foreign country with two kids, a hot plate and one pot before her family moved into a house in a small German village just before Christmas. She emerged from the packing boxes not only to find her turkey platter but also to write this story for her children.
Praise for The Smallest Christmas Tree
“A warm, loving story that any family who has moved to a new home will cherish. Cardillo’s story sparkles with Christmas sentiment and cheer that is sincere and uplifting. This is a wonderful gift for children both young and young-at-heart. ” Amazon reviewer
