Hello, my little friends!
Long, long ago
in a land far away,
lived a perfect little tree named Small Pine.
Small Pine hoped to maintain its perfect form and be selected by the Queen as her Christmas tree. But as the warm-hearted little tree gave shelter to rabbits, birds, and deer in the forest, its branches became damaged. All the other trees in the evergreen forest laughed at Small Pine’s kindness and said Small Pine would never be chosen by the Queen now.
Have you ever offered help or support toward someone, even in the midst of ridicule from friends or those around you?
Why Christmas Trees Aren’t Perfect
Written by Richard H. Schneider
Illustrated by Elizabeth J. Miles
is a wonderful story written about love, warmth and compassion.
Oma loves helping others
and I hope you do too!
Be sure to join me in Oma’s Reading Room to hear all about the little evergreen
who understood that
living for the sake of others makes us most beautiful in the eyes of God.
And remember Oma is sending you her hugs & her blessings!
I hope you’ll catch them and hold them real tight – until we meet again next time,
in Oma’s Reading Room!
