Amazon One Little Christmas Tree free for Kindle

Amazon has One Little Christmas Tree free for Kindle today.if you don't have a kindle you can still download the app to read on your computer

A Christmas story -- for SMART kids.

YES, there's some symbolism. And YES, this story may require an equally smart parent to explain it. But I'd like to think the combination of a smart parent and a smart kid will get it.

Think of this story as an opportunity. Whatever your religion (or lack of one), this is a story that will challenge your child. And, in the process, will challenge you.

How so? Quite simply, to uncover some of your own misgivings, equivocations and tergiversations -- and to explain to your child what "life everlasting" is all about.

This is not a Christian story. This is not a Muslim or a Jewish story. This is a simple NYC story -- about a small pine tree that accompanies a BIG pine tree to the BIG city. And which finds life and its meaning in that same big city.

We should ALL be so lucky. We should ALL find the meaning of life in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Unfortunately, we're not pine trees -- either BIG or small.
