Christmas gifts  


THE CARPENTER'S GIFT: A CHRISTMAS TALE ABOUT THE ROCKEFELLER CENTER TREE by David Rubel with illustrations by Jim LaMarche (Random House 2011) is a perfect gift for the holidays. Near Christmas of 1931, Henry and his father take a load of trees into the city to sell. The family has been hard hit by the Depression; the money from the tree sale will certainly help. On Christmas morning Henry and his family awaken to a wonderful surprise: a group of workmen to whom Henry's father had donated his leftover trees come to the farm to help build a proper home for the family. The spirit of generosity is alive and well in this story. <687>
