Welcome to our spot on the Pee Wee the Christmas Tree blog tour, this holiday season!
This is a special book, sure to elicit quite a few ahs from the kids, and maybe yourself too!
This new heartwarming illustrated story is 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.
This is such a LOVELY story! It's SO important that kids really understand that it doesn't matter what they look like, how smart they are, etc, that each and every one of them is unique and brings special gifts to the rest of us. And that finding those gifts might not come quickly, but that they may come over time. in this day of instant media information, it's hard for kids to absorb that some things are better with time, and that sometimes finding the right place for YOU, means waiting behind some closed doors.
It's a very important message for kids of all ages to learn, and that makes this book perfect for annual family reading, and starting a new tradition, or for giving as a wonderful reminder of the season, to a special child and/or family! We love it and you will too!
