A global celebration of Christmas, this unique tree-shaped carousel-format novelty board book can be opened and folded back to create a free-standing Christmas tree using its integrated magnetic closure. A sturdy and gorgeous gift, featuring frame-worthy art.
Ten days until Christmas.
How I wish I could be,
Not just a plain pine,
But a real Christmas tree.
A pine tree's Christmas wish comes true when a parade of children visit to decorate its branches with unique festive ornaments from around the world - from German nutcrackers to Mexican piñatas, Chinese apples to Ukrainian spiderwebs.
Young readers are invited to experience new and old Christmas traditions through rhyming verse and lush illustrations. Secondary text offers informative context and insight as to how the holiday is celebrated in different cultures around the world.
