The Littlest Evergreen Written and Illustrated
by Henry Cole
Published in 2011
Henry Cole has a unique way of putting the reader directly into nature with his storytelling. Cole’s love of nature is apparent in The Littlest Evergreen, told from a tree’s perspective. Our tree hero is home to birds and mice and can tell it is spring by the creatures’ songs. A few months later in autumn the tree is dug up and taken in a truck to a Christmas tree lot. Our hero is the smallest of all the trees, yet, he finds a home with a family for Christmas.
