After reading this charming, festive story, kids can join in a fun Christmas tradition and place their own wishes to Santa on a wishing tree using the punch-out cards in the back of this book.

A powerful wish and a magical tree…

Theo loves everything about Christmas—from the twinkling lights to the merry carolers . . . and don’t forget about Santa! But with days before before December 25th, there isn’t even a single holly in sight.

Determined to show his town what Christmas is all about, Theo finds ways to share his holiday cheer. And along the way, with a little help from the magical wishing tree, Theo discovers the true meaning of Christmas and a new holiday tradition.

The Wishing Tree is a great choice for your family and sure to become a new Christmas classic. It features:

  • 12 punch-out holiday cards where readers can write their own Christmas wishes, then hang them up on their trees!
