1. The Snow Tree 


The little bear woke up from his deep hibernation and found that the world was covered with snow. He was very curious: Where did the beautiful colors go?

A lynx came from the snow with an orange leaf in its mouth. He explained: This reminds us of the warm light of autumn and the setting sun burning in the night sky. A squirrel followed, and she gently placed the scarlet berries on the bear's feet. The shimmering luster of the berries is like blood drops against the snow.

The blue jay flew down from the air, with a few feathers held tightly in his mouth. "That's all I can give," said the blue jay, "but they are as blue as a clear summer sky and torrential water in the river."

The little bear uses them to decorate the white and flawless snow tree: Merry Christmas!

  This is a rather peculiar story. It's peculiar because the story itself does not conform to the laws of the real world-the elephants in the book not only have Christmas, but they are also playing in the snow, playing with snowballs, and making snowmen-you must know how elephants live on the earth In subtropical areas, there is no snow!

  But in the world of children's imagination, nothing is impossible, just like the elephant Elmer-he is even a colorful patchwork elephant!

  This is an imaginative picture book. Parents do not need to deliberately guide children to recognize the laws of the real world in fact, as their reading and knowledge increase, everyone will learn it sooner or later in Our world and real life.
