Pee Wee The Christmas Tree by George Wells - Blog Tour Review

Today is my stop on the Pee Wee The Christmas Tree by George Wells blog tour and I have both my review and a review from my three year old Nerdling. 

About Pee Wee The Christmas Tree

Heartwarming illustrated story about a Christmas tree overlooked for his small size who refuses to give up on finding a family to spend the holidays with.

For years, Pee Wee has lived in the shadow of the bigger trees on the Christmas farm. Without enough sunlight to grow tall and strong, he has been forced to watch helplessly as the other bigger and more attractive trees are picked every year, going home with a happy family. Just as Pee Wee is about to give up hope that he will ever get the chance to bring joy to a family during the holiday season, he is finally cut down to be sold!

After years of waiting, Pee Wee is disappointed to find that he is still overlooked by customers wanting fuller trees to  decorate. With his dream of celebrating Christmas with a family of his own fading fast, he is at last discovered by two children who tell their father that they found one that is the perfect size. Driven back to their home and adorned with lights and decorations, Pee Wee is finally able to accomplish his life’s big dream: to make children happy at Christmas!

Pee Wee the Christmas Tree by George Wells is the perfect story for young kids this holiday season, encouraging them to never give up on their own dreams and proving that - large or small - there is room for us all.

My Review

Pee Wee The Christmas Tree is a very cute little story about a Christmas Tree who is too small to be used but is eventually found by the perfect family for him. It's a very nice subtle moral tale of not judging people by their outer appearance (in this case height) which is a good thing to instill from as early an age as possible.

The drawings are beautiful and match perfectly with the wording throughout. Both me and my little guy enjoyed looking at the pictures and took time to point different things out in them as we read the story. The story does rhyme which is always good in a children's book, though it took me a couple of attempts in places to get the rhythm back when I lost it while talking about the pictures.

Overall a fun book for younger children and one which parents won't mind reading. A great way to get in the Christmas mood and to prepare for decorating in December.

I gave this book 4 stars.
