My Review
Bruce the Spruce is a cute children's book about a Christmas tree who, after 20 years with the same family, is put out to the curb as a new tree is brought in. Bruce is used to being the star of Christmas, but now he doesn't know what to do. What's a Christmas tree without lights and decorations? What's a Christmas tree without a family?
Follow Bruce as he's taken all over New York City on an unforgettable journey that ends with the true meaning of Christmas trees.
This is a super adorable book. The illustrations are absolutely delightful and really bring the story to life. It's whimsical and magical, and there's a good message/lesson tucked within the pages for young readers. I believe this is a holiday story everyone can enjoy together.
5 stars!
