Summary

"Wake up!It's time to pick out our Christmas tree." Little Bunny is so excited! The morning of Christmas Eve has finally arrived. Today Mama, Papa, Baby Brother, and she will head over to Mr. Samson's lot and bring home the family Christmas tree. Little Bunny is so eager she can barely sit still through breakfast!What Little Bunny doesn't expect is that the right Christmas tree may not be so easy to find -- even in Mr. Samson's full lot. Fortunately she has Baby Brother to help her. And many times little bunnies already hold the answers in their hearts -- especially at Christmastime. Jeanne Modesitt's lovingly simple story accompanied by Robin Spowart's soft, expressive drawings make a Christmas gift every child will cherish.

Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 1. Little Bunny and Baby Brother get up Christmas Eve to go with their parents to choose their Christmas tree. Some are too big, some too spare, but it is the small, live tree in a bucket, as tall as Little Bunny, that the children love. When they decorate it that night, Little Bunny can put the star on top herself. Soft-colored pencil-on-board illustrations are done primarily in reds and greens: Baby Brother has green jammies, and Little Bunny's are red. Green initial caps for the text and a red-and-green bell tailpiece are nice touches. Skirting the edge of sentimentality without quite falling over into bathos, this is a slight but gentle addition to the flood of holiday tales. For larger collections.--GraceAnne DeCandido Copyright 2003 Booklist

School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-Little Bunny is so excited, for today is the day to pick out a tree. Her enthusiasm is infectious as she rouses the rest of the family to visit the tree lot. Mama and Papa are careful to include Little Bunny and Baby Brother in the selection process, which results in a small but living tree. This sweet, simple story about a cherished tradition is sure to be a popular read-aloud or lap-sit choice. Vivid pastel illustrations with bold outlines and a slightly grainy texture enhance the cozy, familial tone.-L. I. (c) Copyright 2010.
