What Wee Read
Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree by Robert Barry
When Mr. Willowby gets a Christmas tree, it's the biggest tree he's ever seen. Too tall for his mansion, his butler chops off the top. And the story takes you through what happens to that treetop, bringing holiday cheer to seven different families along the way. If you were a child of the late 70s or early 80s, you might remember that Captain Kangaroo read this book on his show each year. (Or the '90s Muppets TV special with Robert Downey Jr.) It's a sweet, classic story that we love sharing with our kids.
