Night Tree

Night Tree by Eve Bunting

A lovely picture book to share with children over the Christmas holidays. Every year at Christmas time, a family visits a forest near their home where they decorate a tree for the forest animals, using fruits, nuts, popcorn, and other foods. After decorating the tree, the family moves away a little distance and watches as the forest animals come out to eat the gifts the family has left for them. You can even start a new family tradition using this book as a springboard. I read this book to my niece and nephew and then we decorated a pine tree in their backyard with birdseed ornaments.
