The Little Spruce Tree
by Elizebeth JM Baker

Dapper is a little spruce tree protected by his parents deep in the forest. He witnesses his cousin pines being selected as Christmas Trees and is driven to be one too. Nature surrounds him and he appreciates the beauty of his surroundings. But Dapper doubts himself. Not getting selected for this years Christmas devastates him. He will be too old for next year. What is his purpose he wonders? His family is supportive as they teach him about other uses for spruce trees but Dapper is not satisfied. Yet Dappers' journey has not begun, travel with him while it occurs. Once it does he goes through a magical process bringing him to a place he could never have dreamed of. Being more important than a Christmas Tree, is in his future.

My story concept was inspired from working with very ill children and was driven by a higher power.

I dedicate this book to my father Gordon Baker.
