A tribute to the Christmas tree, accompanied by vintage images and a simple text.
The Christmas Tree is a celebration of the Christmas tree's importance to the holiday season . It is intended primarily for children. We see the journey of the tree, first as it grows, and then on its journey to market. The selection of the tree is an iconic holiday event, evidenced by the number of illustrators who choose to depict it, and we give it our full attention in this book. Tree decoration and visitation by Santa is covered, and finally Christmas morning, the pinnacle of the Christmas tree's existence. Christmas trees of many sizes , from tiny to room-filling, are included in this charming holiday book. Illustrations are from a variety of vintage sources, including postcards, children's books, magazines and advertisements.
