Publisher's Description

Who would like a Christmas tree?
That all depends on when you ask.
In January, in February, in March, in April . . .
the black-capped chickadees, the field mice, the white-tailed deer, and the woodcock, come to claim the tree.
They want it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, for shelter and protection, for a place to start a new family.
Can a Christmas tree be all that?
Yes, and even more . . .
The year has just begun!

Author Bio

Ellen Bryan Obed grew up on a six-acre farm in Waterville, Maine, where she and her siblings waited for the first ice as most children wait for summer or Christmas or a birthday. 
     Ellen now lives with her husband in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. There they experience many kinds of ice coming each winter to area streams, lakes, and ponds, and to the nearby Piscataquis River.

Anne Hunter grew up in South Florida and now lives with her family in the hills of rural Vermont where she can hear the crickets, who sing with the frogs, who listen to the distant hoot of an owl. Anne is known for watching the squirrels, listening to the insects and writing about the natural world around us. She has written and illustrated many children’s books, including Possum’s Harvest Moon, which reviewers described as "a sensational selection," with illustrations that are "beautifully rendered" and have "a hushed mystery." http://www.annehunterstudio.com/

Editorial Reviews

"Hunter’s painterly watercolor and ink illustrations depict the various featured animals—black-capped chickadees, white-tailed deer, monarch butterflies, etc.—against an ever-present grove of fir trees in the background. The final pages show a happy family taking a tree home in December. End matter includes additional information on the ecology of a Christmas tree farm."--The Horn Book 

"Month by month, animal by animal, from aphids to wild turkeys, the whole year of a Christmas tree’s prolific usefulness is revealed. The book remains story-like enough for the very young and meaty enough for the older reader (and for the adult reader, who will learn much)."--Bookpage

"Cross-hatched ink and watercolor drawings create lovely, varied scenes of this special habitat in all seasons, while the text gives voice to the creatures sharing it with the fir trees. An original read-aloud choice for the Christmas season."--Booklist

"Though presented as a Christmas book, this informative introduction to the different animals inhabiting a Maine tree plantation can be enjoyed year round."--School Library Journal

"A patterned text using the titular question for each month is the structure for this ecologically themed Christmas story...The coinciding pages give the common and scientific names for each animal with notes from the Christmas-tree farmer who served as an advisor for the book. A fine Christmas gift for a budding scientist".--Kirkus
