Just in time for the Holidays, a childrenâ€™s story for the child in all of us. All Bruce ever wanted was to be chosen by a special family to be their Christmas treeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ but no one wants a BLUE Christmas tree! A heartwarming tale about accepting the differences in ourselves and in others, Bruce is a story about alienation and individuality, about prejudice and rising above it. And maybe most importantly, itâ€™s a story about finding oneâ€™s place regardless of oneâ€™s â€œhandicapsâ€.
