The Queen and the First Christmas Tree

Written by Nancy Churnin and illustrated by Luisa Uribe

Published by Albert Whitman and Company

Publisher's Summary

Queen Charlotte brought her family's festive holiday yule bough from Germany to England. While planning a Christmas Day party in 1800 at Windsor Castle for over 100 children, she realized a single bough isn't enough. So she brought in the whole tree instead, making it the first known Christmas Tree in England. This story tells a little known fact about a favorite holiday tradition.
