Reviews - What do customers think about A Wish to Be a Christmas Tree?

Cute story, beautiful pictures  Dec 15, 2008
Great story with beautiful pictures. The only downside is that I bought it for my 18 month old and the storyline is a bit complicated for her. Otherwise she love looking at the animals.
WHAT A WONDERFUL STORY!!!!  Dec 14, 2008
This book has become a favorite Christmas tradition for me and my family! The story and the illustrations are beautiful!! Sometimes we even read it in the summer for a "Christmas in July" celebration!!! The Monroe's are wonderfully spiritual people and it shows on every page!! An absolute must read!!
Disappointing  Dec 8, 2008
Considering the high marks this book got I was very disapointed when I received the book. The rhyming is forced and wordy. Although the story line is a cute idea, and picture are pretty it doesnt quite deliver. The tree wants nothing but to be a Christmas tree but has grown too big to be one. He is very sad. The birds and animals get together to decorate him to make him feel better, and let him know how important he is. The simple story line just takes too long to tell with the rhyming text. My kids are 5 and 8 and we have a big collection of Christmas stories. This didnt hold their attention or crack our top ten favorites!
Long drawn out story, pretty pictures  Dec 1, 2008
I bought this story for my 2 year old, but it is really for older kids. The story is long, and a lot to read through. The pictures are pretty, but my toddler won't sit through the whole story so I abbreviate it when we "read" the book. Maybe when she is older, she'll like it more. I was dissapointed that the description didn't mention the age level. Being a board book I thought it would be appropriate for toddlers.
awesome book  Nov 11, 2008
this will be a classic to pull out each year at Christmas time. It is sweet and has beautiful illustrations!
