A love of books and reading is a lifelong treasure passed from adult to child, from generation to generation. Family Trees: A Celebration of Children's Literatureat the Concord Museum in historic Concord, MA gives Concord's renowned literary tradition a creative twist. During the holiday season, the Museum's galleries are filled with 38 fanciful trees of all shapes and sizes, decorated with original ornaments inspired by acclaimed children's storybooks and contemporary picture book favorites.
Each tree serves as a canvas for the artistic creations of a dedicated team of volunteer decorators. Inspired by the storyline, the illustrations, the characters or setting of a particular book, the decorators let their imaginations take flight, much to the delight of visitors of all ages from all over New England.
Proceeds from Family Trees, organized by the Museum's Guild of Volunteers, benefit the Concord Museum's education initiatives.
