This is a longer picture book about a little girl, Pyn, who lives with her gruff father, Oother. At first, we think Oother is just plain mean since Pyn does all the work around the house and he never even says thank you. But when Pyn decides to get them a Christmas tree for the first time, Oother's heart begins to soften a bit. As she decorates it with bits she's been saving, he gives her a special tree topper, something he had made for her mother. I like this for inference. There are several places where we piece the background of their past few years together based on context clues. The illustrations are charming, too.
