Deep in the forest, a tiny pine tree waits impatiently to grow tall enough to be chosen as a Christmas tree. As the seasons change, the little tree revels in the beauty of her world and the gifts nature brings the sky, wind, sun, and rain. Then one day, it suddenly occurs to her: What if she isn’t selected as a Christmas tree? Slowly, she begins to consider what other opportunities life may hold for her. Rabbits and squirrels always need shelter, and her branches, though not festooned with garlands and ornaments, could still provide a cozy winter nest for birds. She could even be welcomed into a family’s home as a window frame. Once again, the little pine tree is happy and hopeful, thankful for life’s boundless possibilities. Simple prose and enchanting illustrations bring this charming story to life.

This is a simple tale about the smallest seedling planted in a field of pine trees who yearns to grow tall enough to become a Christmas tree. Waiting to grow seems like an eternity to this eager little tree. As time passes and the seasons change, the seedling begins to observe the beauty of her forest world and the magical gifts that nature brings -- the sky, wind, sun and rain. She dreams of all the different things she could become when she grows tall -- a shelter for rabbits and squirrels, cozy winter nest for birds, even a window frame for a family's home. Gradually she comes to understand what her longing is really about: the joy of life is to be found anew in each and every day, in appreciating the ordinary moments and the wonders of nature that are often taken for granted. The Littlest Christmas Tree is a book for the entire family to read together, inspiring children impatient to be grown up, and to remind adults who may have forgotten childhood pleasures. The Littlest Christmas Tree provides a gentle, simple and compelling message which invites readers of all ages to pause and reflect on the beauty and promise of today, and to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow. Pam Kurtz's beautiful artwork perfectly complements Janie Jasin's imaginative and well crafted story. -- Midwest Book Review
