That all depends on when you ask.

the black-capped chickadees, the field mice, the white-tailed deer, and the woodcock, come to claim the tree.

I enjoyed reading this book with my daughter and sharing with her the variety of value a tree offers to the world around it- from food to refuge. I was a bit perplexed by the author's intent. Its not an enviromental title- the story is about Christmas trees and takes place on a tree farm, but to see the tree adorned with decorations in the living room of the family that cut it down at the end puts the tradition in a different and not entirely pleasant light.

A yearround look at a Christmas tree farm and the many creatures who benefit from the tree during the 12 months of the year.

Following the story there is a 12 month Tree Farm care guide put together by a Christmas Tree Farmer.

Watercolor and ink illustrations capture the seasons of the year and the distinct features of the animals included with detail and accuracy.
This is a great book to showcase how non-fiction can look like fiction, tuck in a little holiday fun, and think about animals (and plants) and their habitats. Illustrations are cute and you can make a fun guessing/predicting game as you read aloud. Also reinforces calandar (months of the year).

This is a cool and unique concept for a book - what do "Christmas trees" do all year round? Birds nest in them, deer eat them, caterpillars build chrysalises in them. The book goes through each month describing a Christmas tree farm as a unique habitat.
shelved in picture books, this title not only covers the concepts of the months of the year but also the ecosystem/animals who benefit from the tree throughout the year. girls really liked this title--would recommend for preschool and early elem.
This picture book details the use of a Christmas tree in the wild by the wildlife around it. Great support for Gr. 1-3 non-fiction study.
