This is a terribly sweet and heart warming Christmas story. Its all about family and caring about other people more than yourself.

I would recomend this to anyone really, who just wants a heartwarming story. However, I think it would be a lovely family read around the holidays. Something to help kids to understand the real reason for the season. ( )

Addie Mills just wants to have a Christmas tree like her classmates. But she has to contend with her grouchy father who seems to lack interest in Christmas trees and sadly, has a poor relationship with Addie.
Addie's mother has passed away and Addie relies on her loving and compassionate Grandmother for advice.
This book is beautifully written and hopeful. ( )
