In the tradition of Zonderkidz's other legend books -- The Legend of the Candy Cane and The Legend of the Easter Egg -- here is a lovely tale about a family's search for the perfect Christmas tree and their longing to find a way to make Jesus a bigger part of their holiday celebration.

As the family drives through the fog, they come upon a kindly old man in a clearing with three perfectly decorated Christmas trees. The children ask questions and he tells them the legends behind each tree. First, an eighth century monk named Boniface used the three-cornered shape of an evergreen to tell people about the Trinity. Then, during the time of the Middle Ages, people celebrated the Feast of Adam and Eve by decorating trees with apples and bread twists, representing the two trees in the Garden of Eden. During the Reformation, Martin Luther brought a tree into his house and set candles on it to celebrate Jesus, the Light of the world.

The next morning, after the family sets up their tree, they open a box the storyteller has given them and find a beautiful shining star to remind them of the wise men who found Jesus under a star.

This charming and beautifully illustrated story is the perfect way to incorporate the true meaning of Christmas into your family's traditions.
