here are plenty of picture books that extol the days leading up to Christmas and all the festive activities but this clever book goes one step further.
ritz, the main character, loves the holiday and all the special activities like selecting a tree, decorating it, and sharing presents, but what of the days after December 25th?
hen the tree begins to drop its needles and his parents say it is time to remove it and put away the decorations, what then? Good question! Bethanie Deeney Murguia has an answer for that dilemma.
won't spoil the book's conclusion by explaining what Fritz comes up with as a means of keeping Christmas alive, but it is a simple idea that any child can emulate.
o read the book and you'll see how Fritz keeps the spirit of the family's Christmas tree alive for months to come.
