"The Christmas Tree is genuinely moving; and David Birney's sensitive and sympathetic reading does much to enhance the appeal of the winning contemporary fable."
--Los Angeles Daily News
Destined to become a Christmas classic, it is the magical tale of a little girl named Anna from New York City, who is orphaned and sent to live in a convent. Lonely and unaccustomed to her new surroundings, Anna befriends a tiny fir tree. "Tree" becomes Anna's best and most special friend. They grow up together, unlocking the secrets of friendship as well as sharing the wonders of nature. Indeed it is this profound appreciation and love of nature that Anna later, as Sister Anthony, passes on her adoring students. When Tree is threatened by a cruel winter storm, Sister Anthony, now an old woman, decides finally to give up her dearest friend -- allowing him to become what is perhaps the most enjoyed and famous Christmas tree of all.
