“If we are kind to others and willing to help living creatures, we will
always be taken care of by providence.”---This is the timeless message of the
book. Vibrantly and captivatingly illustrated by Phyllis Mae Fisher and Douglas
Wayne Fisher, “Twiglet” the Little Christmas Tree, is an engaging tale of
Christmas spirit and compassion.
This is the story of twins, Rueben and Rachel Oliver, and “Twiglet”. The
orphaned twins live with Gramma Oliver in a little old cabin, in a town called
“Snowflake”. In spite of their humble background, they never hesitate to share
their last morsel and are always helpful to others, be it people or animals.
The unexpected discovery of “Twiglet”, the little Christmas tree with
a white top-notch, is a sign of goodwill. Every new Christmas is a
harbinger of exciting events and warm friendships.
While teaching values, the book offers educational value, as well.
Rhymes like ---“March is in, the winds begin.” or
“November days of rest, after harvests’ best.”--- teach children
about the ever-changing seasons and what makes each
month special. Vivid descriptions and colorful illustrations bring
the holidays alive. Children are introduced to various professions
through the portraits of Grandpa Shepherd, Smithy Peters,
Doctor Luke, Parson Johnson, Miss Sarah, and others.
The glossary is an excellent accompaniment to enhance vocabulary.
Forecast: A heartwarming story, charming pictures, lively characters,
large print and comb binding, make this entertaining and
informative book a perfect gift for young children.
