The Star Tree
Memory—and the Christmas spirit—can be powerful and miraculous!
A timeless classic back in print with a fresh new look
In a little house, in a big city, an old man remembers Christmases long ago—when friends and family gathered to tell stories and sing carols and children made gold paper stars to welcome visitors.
Now the city is filled with skyscrapers, bright lights, and signs. Who would even notice old-fashioned paper stars hanging in a window?
But when the old man decorates a park tree with his basket full of paper stars—the whole community discovers just how powerful the Christmas spirit can be in this joyous holiday story.
A quiet appeal for simple pleasures and old-fashioned celebrations.
