The Christmas Eve Tree
No one wanted the tiny tree because it was small and scraggly. But there’s a boy–we don’t know his name, it might be Tommy–who saw the tree and asked if he could have it. He took it to where he was sleeping, which was in a cardboard box in a railroad tunnel. He bought some candles and matches and decorated the tree, and then invited some other people, and they played music and sang, and it was a really good Christmas Eve, even though they weren’t going to have a nice Christmas dinner the next day. A few days later, someone took the tree and planted it in a park, where it grew into a big tree.
This is a really nice story because it is about everyone being happy on Christmas Eve even if they don’t have very much and about how the tree was really happy with all the people around it. The pictures are beautiful and make you feel so happy for the tree and the boy because they are happy to be together. I was glad that the tree was able to grow into a big tree even though no one wanted it at first.
