"Artie watched the trees. When they saw children misbehave, a fine mist flowed from their branches. When touched by this mist, children stopped bickering, babies stopped crying, and parents started smiling. "What's that coming from your branches?" asked Artie. "That's Christmas Spirit." Artie is delighted when a family selects him to be their Christmas tree. But, because he's not a real tree, he doubts he has enough Christmas Spirit to bring the children the hope, joy, love and peace they need. Who can help Artie believe in himself? No one knows more about Christmas Spirit than Santa. That jolly old elf soon sets Artie straight. Any tree-just like any person-has an infinite amount of Christmas Spirit to share, if it comes from the heart. Artie: The First Artificial Christmas Tree shows children how important it is to share Christmas Spirit. Artie's struggle to feel worthy of the special work of the evergreens will encourage young readers facing their own obstacles and help them to understand the importance of developing their own special talents. Timeless watercolors capture the enduring magic of the Christmas season and will inspire readers to spread cheer through the holidays-and beyond. Artie's story shows that with Christmas trees, just like with people, it's what's inside that matters!"
