Item description for The Legend of the Christmas Tree: The Inspirational Story of a Treasured Tradition (Legends) by Rick Osborne & Bill Dodge...

When the Johnson family goes looking for a Christmas tree they learn how trees have been used, over the years, to explain the true meaning of Christmas.

Publishers Description
On a visit to a tree lot, the Johnson family sees three beautifully decorated trees standing in the center of the lot. A mysterious silver gift-wrapped box is under one of the trees. The old lot owner notices their intrigue and what he tells them, not only marks the beginning of a new family tradition, but also brings meaning and understanding into their Christmas celebration. In The Legend of the Christmas Tree, children ages 4 to 8 will discover the wonderful story of how the evergreen tree first became a symbol of Christmas and a way to tell people about God. The beautiful illustrations by Bill Dodge add a wonderful richness to the story and help bring meaning to one of our best-loved traditions—decorating the Christmas tree.

Reviews - What do customers think about Legend Of The Christmas Tree?

A great book  Nov 30, -0001
with a great message. I enjoyed this book very much myself. I used it in children's church during December. The children loved it and could tell others what the legend was.
A Legend with some History   Nov 30, -0001
Using the format of a family searching for a Christmas tree, the story tells about the legend which began during the Reformation. In Germany in the 1500's, Martin Luther (founder of the Lutheran Church) brought a tree into his house and he set candles on it to celebrate Jesus, the Light of the World. There's a brief mention of the Biblical significance of Christmas. Many people find it appropriate for public school use along with the singing of the song, "Oh, Christmas Tree."
The birthdays of famous people are recognized so in recognizing Jesus' birthday it is historically significant to know why he is famous.
Good Choice for Classroom Reading Guest  Nov 30, -0001
I purchased this book for two reasons. It brings to light the true meaning of Christmas...Jesus and sharing love. This story provides another format to talk about the birth of Christ to your children aside from the traditional manger story. There's a light introduction to the biblical significance of Christmas, in addition to the treasure of family unity. I found that this book helps reinforce the values which I am trying to emphasize in my own family, while also cherrishing old time family traditions. In case you were concerned, I don't think it dilutes the truth of the bible...Also, as a mother of two young elementary school-aged children, I also have the opportunity to be a guest reader in the classroom. It is totally appropriate reading for public schools, even though there is biblical reference. This book offers a refreshing change from the fantasy holiday stories and commercialization of Christmas. It will be a special story to your family and it will set a warm-hearted atmosphere to your tree-decorating festivities.
Every page spread has charming text  Nov 30, -0001
Rick Osborne's The Legend Of The Christmas Tree: The Inspirational Story Of A Treasured Tradition is a delightful kids' book, for which every page spread has charming text on the left and a full-color, realistically painted illustration by Bill dodge of a family celebrating the joy of Christmas on the right. The story is about the legend behind the tradition of searching for a Christmas tree, which dates back to the Reformation: when Martin Luther brought a tree into his house, he set candles on it to celebrate Jesus, the Light of the World. The Legend Of The Christmas Tree is in many ways about the need to make Jesus Christ a larger part of Christmas. Since the Biblical foundations of Christmas are often forgotten in the hustle and bustle of rampant consumerism that marks the season, The Legend Of The Christmas Tree is a very good introduction for young Christian readers to the holiday's origin. Also very highly recommended are the other fine books in this educational series: The Legend Of The Candy Cane (0310212472, $14.99), The Legend Of The Easter Egg (0310224470, $14.99), and The Legend Of The Valentine (0310700396, $14.99).
