The Cactus Who Wanted to Be a Christmas Tree – $8.99
Author: Bob Welbaum; Illustrator: Ashraf
Katie loves Christmastime. Getting presents is nice, and playing in the snow with her friends is fun, but what she likes best are all the pretty decorations. When her family moves to Arizona, Katie can’t find any friends in her neighborhood, and her mom says it probably won’t snow, not even for Christmas. No snow? Will they even have a Christmas tree? Katie is bummed out about Christmas in Arizona…until she makes a special friend that allows her to share her enthusiasm for the holiday.
