The Fir Tree

Once upon a time a little fir tree grew in the woods.
This little fir tree couldn’t wait to grow big.

Fir trees with children playing

Sometimes children used to play near him. They would often say what a pretty little fir tree he was. But he wanted to be a great big tree!

Winter came and the snow lay glittering on the ground. He had grown so well that he was now the perfect size for a Christmas tree!

Some men came along with wheelbarrows.

Next thing, the fir tree felt a tickling down at his feet. He was being dug up by the roots!

Then his roots were all cosy as they were tucked into a merry red pot.
‘I wonder what happens next,’ he thought.

He was put into a wheelbarrow and gently carried into town.

He felt a bit homesick for the forest. But he thought that this was such a big adventure for a tree like him.

As you can imagine, he had never seen a town before.
