This is another book about a family that raises Christmas trees. The sap on the gloves and the axes. This family knows how to share Christmas with those around them. It’s a sweet book and I like the idea they have. Each year they put popcorn, bird seed and suet on a tree outside to watch the birds and animals eat from the tree during Christmas. Sounds lovely. I’m giving it 3 stars for that idea alone.

I’m not crazy about the artwork. The trees were pretty though.

The kids weren’t really into

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. The art is engaging - folk arty and colorful. A little fact page in the back is ...more

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 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.
Ever wonder where Christmas trees come from? This book shows a kid's perspective on his Grandpa's Christmas tree farm. He talks about planting seedlings, trimming growing saplings, and harvesting fully grown trees.

Good for Christmas storytimes.

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.

This is a cute Christmas read about a family that works throughout the year on their Christmas farm. It wasn't very intriguing for a children's book. The illustrations are mediocre.

The year-round work of a Christmas tree farm is explored in this picture book. In this warmly told story, a boy helps his grandparents with their tree farm business. Minor complaint--I wish there were actual photographs of the various species of evergreens. It is hard to identify them from the illustrations. Recommended for lower to middle elementary readers.

Join Grandpa on his tree farm to help plant, prune, and harvest his crop. Interesting and entertaining. I particularly enjoyed the tree facts at the end of the book.
