Little Bunny and the Magic Christmas Tree by David Martin and illustrated by Valeri Gorbachev

Little Bunny is tired of being the littlest one in his family. He's never big enough to do what he wants to do! Then on Christmas Eve he has a magical adventure and becomes even tinier - so small that he can explore inside the Christmas tree! What a magical night!

 There's a lovely 'what if' quality about this book, so it wasn't a surprise to me to read on the back flap that it grew out of David Martin's own childhood wondering about what it would be like to be small and be inside the Christmas tree. There's enough of a story, though, that the book hangs together nicely even if you've never wondered what that would be like. The soft colour palette manages to be warm and bright and cozy - like being inside with family on a winter's night.

Find it at IndieBound.
