by the true story of the 2019 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, this book was
written for the purpose of encouraging children and families that each person
is special and was beautifully created with a purpose to fulfill. It’s about a
young dad who comes up with a wonderful idea of working with his two children
to plant a tree in their yard. After caring for it over the years, the children
have a special bond with the tree, which brings joy to the whole family—but
there is an even greater purpose awaiting both the family and the tree.
you enjoy reading this book with your family, and that it reinforces what every
parent is already trying to communicate to their children: that they are
beautiful and deeply loved by their family, and that they have a very special
place in our world—just like this tree.
