Story #19: Night Tree

Night Tree by Eve Bunting is a Christmas story about a family who decorates the same tree in a forest each year, in the evening time, for the animals. They sit and drink hot chocolate and sing a few carols, then leave the edible decorations for the animals to enjoy for Christmas.

Every December 21 on the Winter Solstice we do the ‘night tree.’ We put peanut butter on bread and dip it in birdseed then take it outside for the animals on the longest night of the year. The photo tells this year’s story….the night tree is the best with friends.
