The Spider and the Christmas Tree
By: Sonia Strockyj
About the Book
The family was poor and, even though they had a Christmas tree, they couldn’t afford to decorate it with ornaments as they have done in the past. And so, on Christmas Eve, the mother and her children went to bed knowing that they would have a bare Christmas tree on Christmas morning.
The spider in the home heard the mother’s prayers and saw the children’s sad faces and decided they would not see the Christmas tree bare in the morning.
The spider created beautiful webs on the Christmas tree, decorating it with elegant and beautiful silky patterns.
