I played around with making the background a light red color, but because it turned out looking more like pink than red, I decided against it. I wanted to choose a text and background color that weren’t too distracting from the book, but still added to the overall feel.
I haven’t fully decided on the colors yet, but I was pretty happy with how a background of light green looked with navy text. The colors seemed to compliment the art, and I think they will flow will throughout the book. Because this is a Christmas story, and a lot of it takes place outside I think green is a great choice.
The book is about the tiniest tree, the grumbling tree and the wise old tree as they discover the Christmas spirit is a matter of the heart and attitude. It’s a heartwarming story that reminds us to share Christmas with those less fortunate than ourselves….
