This is a very sweet way of describing to children how their 'live' trees come from. The family own a tree farm and the children set out with Grandpa to cut them down. But during the Spring they also help plant and farm them. A nice way of showing it's not just a fake tree to go buy it then comes down. Illustrations are nice as well.
A story about a boy whose grandfather owns a Christmasd tree farm is well done and interesting - includes the "backstory" of Christmas trees and how it is to work on a Christmas tree farm. I think any child who has ever gone to one of those farms with their family to pick their own tree or gone to the corner lot in the city to pay the man in the "tree hut" to wrap up a tree for them, will find this story interesting.

A boy tells how his family's Christmas tree farm requires yearlong work, from planting seedlings to weeding, pruning, measuring, cutting, and baling. This book represents a culture of a boy who lives with his grandparents on a Christmas tree farm. I like the fact that it is a different type of farm, not your typical chickens and corn.
This text was highly informative about the life of Christmas trees and those who grow them, while simultaneously maintaining an entertaining narrative. It covers all the seasons of the Christmas tree growth and has a tale of family togetherness weaved in at the same time. It was nicely done.
This was a good book to show readers that there is work to be done on the Christmas tree farm all year around. Love the relationship that the boy and his grandpa have, helping him out on grandpa's tree farm. The setting of this book reminded me of the tree farm that we went to this year.
