Lit Trees for Christmas
The Concord Museum’s celebrates the holiday with “Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature,’’ an exhibit that spans 14 years and generations of authors and readers. The museum is filled with trees of all shapes and sizes, each one decorated by a different volunteer and each tree adorned with ornaments inspired by a classic or contemporary children’s book. One tree is adorned with little blue schoolgirl uniforms and French flags in the spirit of “Madeline,’’ a character that has captured the hearts of petites filles since 1939. Another is topped with a safari hat and trimmed with bugs and flowers, a nod to “Fancy Nancy: Explorer Extraordinaire.’’ There are 35 trees in the literary grove.
