A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles Schulz. It’s the Christmas season. All the kids are getting ready for the festivities and enjoying the winter weather. Charlie Brown just doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about. The holidays always make him sad. After getting advice from Lucy, Charlie Brown agrees to get into the spirit by directing the school play. After the first practice he decides to get everyone in the mood to be serious about their parts by getting a Christmas tree. Later, after picking out a little, plain pine, and bringing it back, the kids think the tree is poor and scraggly. “I guess I didn’t pick a good tree. Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?” Linus strides to center stage and proceeds to describe the manger scene, ending with peace on earth and goodwill toward men. Charlie Brown takes his tree home and puts an ornament on it, but the ornament makes the tree sink to the ground, and Charlie Brown sadly walks away. Find out how all the kids come together to make Charlie Brown feel better, and how they transform the little pine tree. See this book listed in our catalog
