Have you ever wondered how the evergreen tree first became a symbol of Christmas? This wonderful story about a family quite like yours is filled with beautiful illustrations that add a deep warmth and richness to the meaning behind one of our best-loved traditions—decorating the Christmas tree.

On a visit to a tree lot, the Johnson family sees three beautifully decorated trees standing in the center of the lot. A mysterious silver gift-wrapped box is under one of the trees. The old lot owner notices their intrigue. What he tells them not only marks the beginning of a new family tradition, it also adds a more profound meaning and greater appreciation to their whole Christmas celebration.

The Legend of the Christmas Tree takes children ages 4 to 8 through a fun and enriching discovery of how the evergreen tree became known as a Christmas tree and, most importantly, how it also became a way to tell people about God.
