Overview

Branch is the story of an unnoticed Christmas tree because of his size. Branch spends one whole Christmas season unchosen. After a year of learning how to nourish his body as suggested by his farmer, he grows to be one of the fullest, most beautiful trees in the farm that was finally chosen during the next Christmas season.

The story of Branch teaches children about hard work, dedication, and motivation, and that anything is obtainable if they set their minds to it. Children will also enjoy reading a story that possibly shares one of their own family traditions during the holidays, choosing their favorite Christmas tree!

One of her favorite childhood memories was going to the tree farm with her family to mark their annual tree before Thanksgiving each year and returning to pick it up after Thanksgiving, only to have it be the magical centerpiece of their living room where family Christmases were celebrated each year.
