In this sweet and softly illustrated picture book, a young girl journeys through downtown Baltimore with her father on the way to find the perfect Christmas tree in the deep woods.
Christmas is coming! And all Chita can dream about is choosing her very own Christmas tree.
“Mama!” Chita calls. “Mama! Is today the day?”
“Yes,” says Mama. “Papa is almost ready.”
And so Chita and her father set out in the buggy into the deep, snowy woods to find Chita’s very own Christmas tree. And when Christmas morning comes, Chita has many surprises, but none as beautiful as her tree—with its full and graceful branches and her name carved in its trunk.
Elizabeth Fitzgerald Howard grew up hearing stories of her grandfather’s childhood from her mother and later visited Jonesborough, Tennessee, a town seven miles from where her grandfather grew up. There, she drew inspiration for stories of her own.
