As a Tommy Mommy, I had the opportunity to review a wonderful Christmas book, “The Pine Tree Parable.” This book is so appropriate for all ages and another way to emphasize the meaning of giving. My trustworthy assistant, Tristina, a 2nd grader, wrote this review:
This book is about a farmer who plants Christmas trees every day of the year. The farmer and his wife started to plant Christmas trees when their children were little. As the kids grew, the trees grew with them. One day the farmer and his wife had enough trees to sell them for Christmas, but there was one tree that was not for sale. A poor family of three came to get a tree. There was a little girl, a mommy and a daddy. They could not afford a tall pretty tree like some people. So they went to the free and small trees. The little girl saw a big, tall and pretty tree. It was the tree that farmers wife picked out that was not for sale. But the little girl didn’t know that. Her parents were embarrassed. So was the farmer. She wanted it so bad but it wasn’t for sale. The farmers wife took a breath and said “This is not for sale but you can have it. As a gift. For Christmas.” Her parents were so thankful. They were so happy. The farmer was so proud of his wife. The little girl jumped up and down. Up down. Up and down. When they cut down the tree. They took it home in their rusty, old truck. Now that’s the true meaning of Christmas. Don’t you think? This book is really about caring. And teaches people how to care.
Thanks, Tristina, for a great job on the review!
