During the day, the Miller family’s Christmas tree stands tall in their living room, sparkling with lights and ornaments.

Follow along as Hannah and William experience the magic of Christmas in a whole new way.
I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from iRead Book Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
The Millers have a Christmas tree whose ornaments come to life when everyone is in bed! On Christmas Eve, Hannah snuck into the living room to see if she could catch Santa but what she saw was talking and moving ornaments!
The Living Christmas Tree is a fun story for parents and children to read during the holidays. The illustrations are bright and colorful which will keep children’s interest. It also encourages children to use their imaginations. I’ll be reading this book with my grandsons next week!
