We rated this book:


On a delightful, wintry day, Georgie and her dog, Jackster, climb into Grandpa Sid’s truck. After they arrive at Grandpa’s Christmas tree farm, Georgie picks a tiny seed among a plethora. She dreams it will someday become her very own Christmas tree. She names it Piney and spends countless hours cultivating it with her love. The two become inseparable until one day, Piney’s loaded onto an enormous truck and transported to a Christmas tree lot where Georgie fears she’ll never find him. In the end, her furry companion rescues Piney, and together, they make the arduous journey to Georgie’s house just in time for the holiday.

This is an indelible Christmas tale that’s based on the award-nominated special: Piney: The Lonesome Pine. Young children ages four to nine will be captivated and heartened by its timeless storyline. It’s perfect to share with loved ones around the glowing embers of a glistening fire or snuggled up under the covers at night. Georgie’s unrelenting hope and determination will inspire youth to believe in their dreams, and though the narrative is predictable, little ones will take comfort in the innocence and sweetness delicately woven through it.
