Uncle Vova's Tree Read ó eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF A holiday favorite from Patricia Polacco is now available again to her fans' delight Based on Polacco's childhood memories this is the story of her Great uncle Vladimir known as Vova and his color. The Christmas season was always a happy time at Uncle Vova s With the sweet scent of evergreen in the air the many different kinds of kutya a traditional Russian porridge made of wheat or rice with honey poppyseeds raisins and nuts to eat and beautiful paper stars to make there was no end of fun and pleasure But the real magic always came last the night time sleigh ride and the decoration of Uncle Vova s tree with berries and popcorn intended for the local animals Planted the year he and Aunt Svetlana first emigrated from the Old Country the evergreen was an important part of the holiday tradition at Uncle Vova s But when his family faced their first Christmas without him they forgot all about the tree Was it too late to honor the traditionLike so many of Patricia Polacco s picture books Uncle Vova s Tree was an engaging mixture of happy childhood memoir and poignant familial drama The accentuated sense of sadness that the holidays bring when a loved one has died is sensitively captured by the author but so too is the strength of family tradition and the miraculous possibilities of the season A brief introductory note makes it clear that this is a story from Polacco s own childhood which surprised me as I had thought as per The Trees of the Dancing Goats that her family was Jewish Perhaps they were both In any case this lovely holiday tale is a gentle reminder that for some this is a time of miracles
