Pick a Pine Tree by Patricia Toht

Illustrated by Jarvis
Review copy provided by publisher.

Join a family as they pick out a tree for Christmas. There are many choices, but choosing is just the first step. Once your choice is made it's time to decorate and turn your pine tree choice into a Christmas tree.

Thoughts: A wonderful celebration of a Christmas tradition. We had live trees growing up, but we (the kids) never got to do the picking. My dad just found one in the woods. I love the inclusion of what happens to the tree after it's picked. Decorating the tree is such a magical thing. The illustrations are detailed and fun. The lack of outlines make the illustrations brighter. My favorites are the different trees at the tree lot, all the different tree decorations, and the Christmas tree. Pick a Pine Tree is a great book to read before going to pick out your Christmas tree. I think reading the book could become an annual tradition.
