My Wonderful Christmas Tree by the legendary Dahlov Ipcar is a holiday classic that conveys the feeling of the late December outdoors in New England.

From the snowy, wintery window of her art studio, the narrator sees a wild and wondrous world. With vivid imagination and vibrant colors, she captures a lively part of the Christmas season at her farm in Maine.

Reminiscent of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” but uniquely Maine-born, the pages move through a magical collection of wildlife gathering in an evergreen tree.

From one shining star that graces the top of a living outdoor tree, the author envisions many captivating creatures of the field and forest who come to visit. From young black bears to snowy owls, from evening grosbeaks to happy chipmunks, this book presents a lively panorama of wild creatures she has seen and enjoyed.
