The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree- An Appalachian Story

The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree

By Gloria Houston
Picture Books

In a small Appalachian town, families take turns bringing the perfect Christmas tree to donate to the town. This year, Ruthie’s family has been chosen, and they find the perfect tree high on a rocky crag. But when Christmastime comes, Ruthie’s father has been called off to war and the tree remains on the high crag. How will the town get their tree? This book features a beautiful story and exceptional illustrations. I love the wonderful messages and strong family ties.
