An endearing holiday symbol with ancient roots.

The Christmas tree tradition has roots in many ancient cultures. Originally, it had little to do with gift-giving, reindeer, or elves. O Christmas Tree explores the history and traditions--from the tree's origins to the first tree lights and decorations--that led to how people enjoy these trees today. Also includes information about how these special evergreens are grown.

Beautiful illustrations capture the magic and festivity of the holiday season.

This book is good for your brain because:
Explores the history of cultures and traditions around the world, life science (life cycle of trees), non-fiction, historical studies
