Reviews - What do customers think about The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree: An Appalachian Story?

The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree  Jan 7, 2008
This is a wonderful story that shows the importance of keeping family traditions alive and about the courage it sometimes takes to carry on in the most difficult of times. You will absolutely love Ruthie and will warm up to her really thoughtful and loving mother. This is a story very close to my heart since I grew up close to the Appalachian Mountains and remember how excited we were at Christmastime--- to just be together.

Christmas book  Jan 2, 2008
I bought this for my kindergarten granddaughter as her Christmas book. I wanted something a little different from the typical Christmas book and this one delivered. She really enjoyed the book.
From a veteran of Christmas picture books...  Dec 17, 2007
I have been collecting Christmas books for my family for years and this was my 2007 pick. The illustrations are lovely and the story simple and sweet. Very interesting for those who enjoy Appalacian literature.
Outstanding book! Won't be disappointed!  Dec 7, 2007
A heartfelt, inspiring story about Christmas in the Appalachian Mountains. We live in Asheville, NC and our young children love us reading this book to them over and over!
Wonderful Christmas Story!  Nov 30, 2007
The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree tells a memorable story that might have taken place during World War I or today. Set in the North Carolina Mountains, the author and illustrator weave a literary experience children will love! The CD is a winner, too--featuring the stunning illustrations!
