Night Tree is about a family that has a Christmas Eve tradition of going into the woods and decorating a living tree with food for wild animals. A wonderful combination of author and illustrator, this book is always a favorite in our house. If you'd like to make additional wild bird treats check here for some ideas.

•peanuts in the shell
Step 1: using a double strand of thread, string a peanut on first and tie a knot around it at the end - this will keep the other items from sliding off
Step 2: start adding the dried fruits, cranberries, and peanuts to your garland until you are about 5" from the end
Step 3: finish with another peanut and a knot
Step 4: hang in your trees or some place that birds will visit and enjoy
