Hope brightly shines within the pages of Little Twig. Though lacking strength from an unexpected calamity yet because of a courageous choice-a broken and frightened little oak twig finds friendship and worth he never imagined possible. In joyful rhyme and with radiant illustrations, this tender tale of Christmas magic captures the sweet affection and playfulness between a child and the world outside.
Come enjoy this book with the people who created it at a holiday book release party at APL.
