Christmas at Long Pond. by William T. George and Lindsay Barrett George
Christmas at Long Pond. A father and son pull a toboggan carrying the spruce tree they just selected and cut. Trying not to disturb the winter creatures of frozen Long Pond, they also fell an old poplar to create something for deer to eat and start the growth of new shoots by spring. While coming and going, they hear a woodpecker, see deer, notice fox prints and listen to activity within a beaver lodge.
The books should convey truth, not sentimentality or mush. I dislike stories that are constructed purely to give readers a cheap high of sentimentality. Christmas at Long Pond, by William T. George. Even if Christmas is a time of warm fuzzies, the fuzzies will last longer if they are built on truths rather than evoked by vague, atmospheric platitudes. As a father and son go out to cut down their Christmas tree, they encounter a variety of realistic wildlife. A good choice for young naturalists.
