About Pee Wee The Christmas Tree:
Heartwarming illustrated story about a Christmas tree overlooked for his small size who refuses to give up on finding a family to spend the holidays with. For years, Pee Wee has lived in the shadow of the bigger trees on the Christmas farm. Without enough sunlight to grow tall and strong, he has been forced to watch helplessly as the other bigger and more attractive trees are picked every year, going home with a happy family. Just as Pee Wee is about to give up hope that he will ever get the chance to bring joy to a family during the holiday season, he is finally cut down to be sold! After years of waiting, Pee Wee is disappointed to find that he is still overlooked by customers wanting fuller trees to decorate. With his dream of celebrating Christmas with a family of his own fading fast, he is at last discovered by two children who tell their father that they found one that is the perfect size. Driven back to their home and adorned with lights and decorations, Pee Wee is finally able to accomplish his life’s big dream: to make children happy at Christmas! Pee Wee the Christmas Tree by George Wells is the perfect story for young kids this holiday season, encouraging them to never give up on their own dreams and proving that - large or small - there is room for us all.

My Review:
The illustrations are cartoon style and fit well with the story of the little tree. The author wrote in a lyrical style that tells the story of patience and waiting to realize your dreams. The story is accompanied by a song with the lyrics matching the book. This would make an excellent addition to your Christmas reading pile. It can also open the way for discussion on patience, realizing your dreams, and other topics.

I received a copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.
