The Littlest Spruce by Tony Jerris

The littlest Spruce by Tony Jerris is a Christmas tale with a difference. Based around three trees and two mice The littlest Spruce tells of the chopping of Christmas trees, separating the littlest spruce from momma and pop. Along come two little mice who devise a plan to reunite the littlest spruce with his parents in a warm cosy house.

This is a sweet little book that is written in metered poetry and sits nicely as an early reader. Each page contains an illustration by Tanya Weinberger, with the words sitting around it. 

I enjoyed sharing this book with my daughter but on the downside found the red pages a little hard on the eyes as I was halfway through. On the first instance I was a little put off by the use of capitals for the entire back blurb feeling that the quality I was about to find within was going to be poor. This was not the case as the story provides an enjoyable read.

The Littlest Spruce by Tony Jerris is a book that focuses on the importance of family value and consideration for others. I love the use of a tree giving thought to our environment. 

Tony Jerris is an accomplished playwright, author and and screenwriter. His professionalism as a writer shows within The Littlest Spruce. This was his first children’s book, winning Best New Children’s Book at the North American Book Exchange and featuring on Good Morning America. It was soon followed by The Big Cheese Family!

The Littlest Spruce is a great Christmas read that will grow with children, being pulled off the shelf and shared each Christmas.
