It’s the day after Thanksgiving. Eileen, the lonely Christmas tree, lives uphill on Chapman’s farm in a village called Saxtons River in Vermont. It’s the hope of all Christmas trees that they are chosen to go home with someone to make a holiday special.
Year after year, Eileen watched as her fellow trees went to Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, and even New York. Eileen has stayed behind because no one picked her. But one special day, she goes home with Sam, his mother, and their dog, Bailey, to a place called Maple Grove. Eileen can’t wait to get all dressed up with lights, ornaments, and bows.
This poetic picture book for children shares a story of love, celebrations, and hope as Eileen the Christmas tree finds a special place in one family’s hearts and home.
