About this Book:

From the snowy, wintery window of her art studio, Dahlov Ipcar sees a wild and wondrous world. With vivid imagination and vibrant colors, she captures a lively part of the Christmas season at her farm in Maine. From one shining star that graces the top of a living outdoor tree, she envisions many captivating creatures of the field and forest who come to visit.

From young black bears to snowy owls, from evening grosbeaks to happy chipmunks, this book presents a lively panorama of wild creatures she has seen and enjoyed. My Wonderful Christmas Tree by the legendary Dahlov Ipcar is a holiday classic that conveys the feeling of the Christmas season outdoors in New England.

My Wonderful Christmas Tree

“I was delighted to discover a new edition of My Wonderful Christmas Tree. This children's Christmas picture book by Dahlov Ipcar is an unusual Christmas book. It is not about Santa Claus nor is it about the birth of Jesus. It does not feature lots of bright colors and frenetic activity. Instead, it is a quiet counting book, in rhyme, that features animals that live in the fields and forests of New England.”
—Elizabeth Kennedy,, Best Children's Christmas Picture Books of 2008

"The stylized illustrations combine elements of nature with striking design."
—Nashua Telegraph

"A beautiful addition to any holiday book collection, Dahlov Ipcar's My Wonderful Christmas Tree combines simple verse with truly gorgeous illustrations. The accompanying text is a traditional children's counting poem, but Ipcars depiction of a wintery New England forest s inhabitants makes this a timeless classic. The cuddly black bears, prickly porcupines and squeaky chipmunks virtually flit through the pages in shades of sage green and deep orange. The illustrations are brightly imagined and will have you wanting to discover more of Ipcars beautiful childrens books. This vibrant work of art will engage and delight both children and adults."
