Publisher's Weekly Review

First published in 1984, Apple Tree Christmas by Trinka Hakes Noble celebrates life on the farm as much as it does a homespun holiday celebration, with a fir tree decorated with apples, and pies for eating, and a special gift Papa fashions from their beloved tree.

Horn Book Review

In the 1880s two girls and their parents live on a farm. The sisters cherish the old apple tree in the yard, but when a blizzard strikes, the weakened tree collapses. Papa's ingenuity turns the toppled tree into joyous surprises on Christmas morning. The bright, realistic paintings reflect the feeling of the simple life of a loving family. (c) Copyright 2010.
