The most interesting part of this book is found in the author's blurb. This book is written about the author's cousin who was the daughter of the first African American doctor in Baltimore.

But, the story itself shows a young girl experiencing the Christmas season and awaiting her special Christmas tree. The story has a lot of text, but is made up of simple sentences (sometimes fragments) which could make it a good independent chapter book for a transitional reader.

It was a cute story of a girl and her family at Christmas. The part I liked best was actually the authors information about Chita, on the back cover. It is based on the author's cousin. I love seeing stories inspired by real people and events.
This is a look into one families Christmas tradition. This can be used for comparing different traditions, along with what different families do for different holidays

The magic of the chosen Christmas Tree trumps all of Chita's gifts from Santa. The lovely, familiar beloved moments of a long ago family Christmas. Beautifully illustrated.
