Rocky: The Rockefeller Christmas Tree

Nicassio unveils spectacular new illustrations in this heartwarming holiday tale. The children’s picture book centers around the famous Rockefeller Christmas Tree.

“Colangelo’s illustrations bring Rocky to life.”

An unlikely Christmas tree dreams of becoming the famous Rockefeller Christmas Tree in New York City. Come along with Rocky, Mary Louise, AJ, Mrs. Pickles and Bruce Spruce to New York City!

The most magical time of the year in New York City comes in November with the lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree. Because of the significance of the occasion, evergreens from all around the world dream of becoming the Rockefeller Christmas Tree – and young Rocky is no exception. The only problem? As a small, rather unattractive sapling, Rocky can barely compete with the more robust specimens seeking to steal the spotlight he so desperately craves; however, with a little help – and a strong belief in himself – Rocky may just see his long-held dream finally come true…

Rocky: The Rockefeller Christmas Tree is a heartwarming tale for readers of all ages. Touching on such universal themes as keeping the faith, believing in oneself, and persevering through adversity makes the story particularly appealing to young readers. By crafting Rocky as a flawed, yet determined tree – rather than an immaculate, undefeatable hero – readers easily relate to his passionate quest to succeed, despite the obstacles standing in his way.

“Such a positive story with marvelous artwork that brought these characters to life. I was immediately drawn into this tale and could hear the snow crunch.” — Dina Mellas

“All you have to do is believe.”
