The After-Christmas Tree by Linda Wagner Tyler and Susan Davis is a treasure I picked up in a bookstore when I was teaching (and before I was married!). It was one of those books that I knew I had to add to my picture book collection as soon as I read it.
The narrator shares her sadness that it is New Year’s Day and time to take down the Christmas tree. She reminisces about the fun things they did during Christmas and then reveals the idea the family had to make the season last even longer. You’ll have to read the story to see what they did with their tree!
The After-Christmas Tree is a short and fun read with charming illustrations and text. It will inspire you in a new way as you think about the time after Christmas and look for ways to extend the joy of the Christmas season. Definitely worth adding to your collection of Christmas books to bring out each year!
