Overview Small Pine is selected to be the Christmas tree in the Queen's castle, demonstrating that living for the sake of others makes us most beautiful in the eyes of God
Long, long ago, in a land far away, lived a perfect little tree named Small Pine. Small Pine hoped to maintain its perfect form and be selected by the Queen as her Christmas tree. But as the warm-hearted little tree gave shelter to birds, rabbits, and deer in the forest, its branches became damaged. Fortunately, the Queen had a different idea of perfection...
Young readers will want to read and reread the story of how Small Pine's love and charity for its friends helps make it the most "perfect" Christmas Tree of all.
This magnificently illustrated story of a warm-hearted Christmas tree will surely become one of the most beloved classics of future generations. Schneider's storytelling will enthrall children and adults alike.

Beautiful Story Jan 15, 2007
I love the story "Why Christmas Trees Aren't Perfect", It is a simple lesson of priorities and what really makes someone beautiful. The illustrations are a wonderful complement to the story being told. It is a book to bring out every year at Christmas time.
Beautiful story Dec 19, 2006
This is an enchanting Christmas tale of internal beauty and acceptance. It sends a lovely message about generosity, kindness, uniqueness and hope. It also helped my children and I pick a "not so perfect" tree when we went to select ours for Christmas. My children pointed out tress that weren't perfect and we selected one that wasn't perfectly shaped and maybe a little crooked. It stands proudly in our living room and is perhaps the most lovely tree we've ever had.
wonderful book Jan 15, 2006
A beautiful story for anyone. Adults and children; it's ageless. Fabulous illustrations and brilliant writing.
My son's pick Dec 15, 2005
My 7-year old son rarely talks about what happens in school and he came home telling me the whole story of "Why Christmas Tree's Aren't Perfect" because he enjoyed hearing the story from his teacher. He even wrote down the name so I could find it for our home.

I had never read this book before, but a mom at school told me about it. It was so touching it brought a tear to my eye!
