Pick a Pine Tree

author: Patricia Toht
illustrator: Jarvis

Part of the magic of the Christmas season stems from the traditions that families and friends take part in every year: hanging up stockings; putting lights in the windows; and, one of the most important of all, picking out and taking home the Christmas tree. With style and warmth, debut author Patricia Toht and Jarvis, the author-illustrator of Alanís Big, Scary Teeth, evoke all the rituals of decorating the tree ó digging out boxes jam-packed with ornaments and tree trimmings, stringing tinsel, and, at long last, turning on those twinkling lights. Joyously drawn and rhythmically written, this celebration of family, friends, and the holiday season is as merry as the tradition it depicts.

A festive read-aloud brimming with all the joy and excitement of Christmastime ó beginning, of course, with picking out a tree!
