Every day until Christmas Eve, stock librarian Sophie will recommend one of our brilliant new Christmas books for children. Today’s book is Pick a Pine Tree, by Patricia Toht & Jarvis.
“Pick a pine tree from the lot - slim and tall, or short and squat! Long straight limbs or branches bent - Mmm! Just smell that piney scent!
“Brimming over with the excitement of being with family at the festive season, a gorgeously rhythmical narrative accompanied by warm, joyful art celebrates all the familiar rituals of decorating the tree - from digging out jam-packed boxes of trimmings, stringing tinsel, to, at last, turning on those twinkly fairy lights.”
