For those who celebrate Christmas, getting a Christmas tree can be a treasured pastime. As a child, I often wondered about the tree my family picked out at the tree farm near our house. Would it miss its fellow tree friends and family? Would the little tree be happy in its new home? Obviously I was not alone. "Little Tree," a poem by E.E. Cummings, included at the beginning of this book, inspired Chris Raschka to create his own version of the story about a little evergreen's journey home. Simply a delight!
