38 Pages

The world is not always a perfect place. Needles, a scraggly little tree, must endure criticism, laughter, and setbacks to realize his goal of becoming a beautiful Christmas tree.This is a story of dreams, desires, hope, determination, and never giving up. It also offers the observation that what others think is beautiful may not really matter. Beauty is truly in the eyes of the beholder and paired with the spirit of Christmas, maybe we can make the world just a little more perfect!

My Review


A heartwarming Christmas story about hope and never giving up! Needles is a very small Christmas tree and is picked one by all the bigger trees on the tree lot. Needles never gives up hope though. That hope and his faith land him in the best place ever – a home that will truly appreciate him for all that he is. A little girl in a wheelchair finds that Needles is the perfect size for her to decorate. I loved this story, through and through. It was perfect for this holiday season.

About The Author

Richard Wagner grew up in Southern California. When he was fourteen years old, a business friend of his father’s had a small Christmas tree delivered as a thank-you. Their family already had a large tree decorated in the house. Not being able to find anyone who needed a tree, that small Christmas tree stood outside by itself for the remainder of the Christmas holiday. Needles, the Forgotten Christmas Tree is a tribute to that little tree and what might have been, but more importantly, to all the beauty, goodness, and hope that Christmas brings to us all. Mr. Wagner continues to reside in Southern California with his wife and two children.
