The Best Parts of Christmas

The Best Parts of Christmas
By Bethanie Deeney Murguia
Candlewick Press, 2015. Picture Book

Fritz loved the live Christmas tree he picked out for his family. He had the important job of decorating it when they brought it home. His mother reminded him to spread out the ornaments to cover the entire tree but Fritz knew the ornaments wanted to be closer to their friends. When he was done he realized that with the ornaments so close together that the tree looked rather bare and came up with an idea to finish decorating the rest of the tree. When he was done he loved it so much that he did everything by the tree—read, played, etc. But when Christmas had come and gone and it was time to remove the tree, Fritz was sad to let the tree go…until he came up with another great idea!

The simple magic of Christmas is brought to life in this picture book that preschoolers will enjoy having read to them.
