Pick a Pine Tree by Patricia Toht

From Alan’s Big, Scary Teeth creator, Jarvis, and author Patty Toht, comes a beautiful, irresistible Christmas gift book that all begins with … picking a pine tree! 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.

The Christmas Eve Tree by Delia Huddy

A magical midi-edition of Delia Huddy and Emily Sutton’s poignant, exquisitely illustrated Christmas story, with a beautiful pop-up cityscape. When the ugly little fir tree is taken to the city, no one wants to buy him; they prefer the big tall trees. But a homeless boy asks the shopkeeper if he can take the tree, and down by the river in a cardboard box, decorated with a few candles, the tree finds itself at the centre of a magical Christmas Eve it will never forget. With a stunning pop-up of a snowy city skyline, this is a Christmas tale with a classic feel but a modern theme at its heart.

The Tree That’s Meant To Be by Yuval Zommer

A gorgeous Christmas picture book that’s destined to become a festive classic. A little fir tree is too small and too imperfect to be chosen at Christmas time. But being left alone in the forest brings more rewards than the tree could ever have hoped for. . . This is a charming and classic-feeling Christmas picture book with a heartfelt message about love and embracing what makes us different. Families will love sharing the story and talking about kindness, generosity, and the true meaning of Christmas. Award-winning author Yuval Zommer puts the living world at the heart of his powerful storytelling.

The performance will last approximately 40 minutes.
