The Christmas Cub
by Justine Korman Fontes
Illustrated by Lucinda McQueen
This is the book I read today.
It is about a curious little cub named Pip who climbed out of his den during the winter to see what he was missing!
He had quite an adventure. He met up with a fir tree named Evergreen.
He saw people for the first time. They were celebrating Christmas.
He saw the decorations, heard the singing and ate the cookies!
Evergreen and Pip shared presents and got to feel Christmas happy.
Pip turned out to be a most beautiful tree and when Santa appeared, he said, "I believe you are a Christmas tree."
From then on, all evergreens have been Christmas trees - and cuddly teddy bears have been Santa's favorite gift to give.
