In this sweet counting song for kids, Laurie Berkner shares the story of a little pine tree who longs to be a beautifully decorated Christmas. With the help of a group of woodland animals, the little tree becomes a beacon of Christmas – and togetherness – for the whole forest.
“I love this video and how it brings to life all of the animals, the counting, the decorations, the feeling of Christmas spirit, and of course, the Little Tree itself,” says Laurie Berkner. “It’s a song that is very close to my heart. I wrote ‘Little Tree‘ hoping that the kids who heard it would see themselves in the little tree and that they would take in the song’s message: that even though they are small, they still have so much to give, just by being who they are.”
A new Laurie Berkner Christmas video for kids, Little Tree, was released today.

Special guest will be Jules Hoffman of the popular YouTube show, Songs for Littles.
