About the Book

Little Helen and her brothers, Sonny and Richie, are ready for Christmas, their favorite time of year. Although they are living in the middle of the Great Depression, their family has everything they need—except the perfect Christmas tree!

As Christmas quickly approaches, Little Helen’s father heads out to choose a tree for the family’s holiday celebration. When things don’t go as planned, he comes up with a creative solution that teaches the entire family a valuable lesson that will last a lifetime.

In this heartwarming holiday story, a little girl learns an inspiring lesson about perseverance and resourcefulness when her family’s most cherished Christmas tradition does not go as expected.
