Rocky is a Norway Spruce tree who has a big dream! What is that dream? He wants to become the famous Rockefeller Christmas Tree! In Jennie E. Nicassio's children's book, Rocky The Rockefeller Christmas Tree, Nicassio shares the story of Rocky and the journey he takes to reach his goal. This is such a big goal for Rocky that he feels it may be impossible. Rocky, himself, is a sapling and he's competing with robust evergreens. He's not the biggest or the strongest tree. Yet, he still wants to try. Rocky is determined. He is flawed, not perfect - just as we all are. I always love books whose characters have dreams and work to reach them!
Strong themes that run through this charming children's book include: believing in yourself and pushing through obstacles.
In the book, while Rocky works toward his goal, he is supported by some and faces adversity by others. I loved this aspect - as it is so true to real life. Whether children or adults, we can all relate to this notion. As Rocky began to believe himself, good things started to happen. Again, a sentiment we can all understand.
The book's illustrations by Dina Colangelo are well done and inviting. The book is friendly and colorful.
