November had arrived and still the villagers did not accept them. Christmas was approaching and missing her home in Canada Mrs. Paul made a little tree from scraps of materials she found. The twinkling lights she strung around the Holiday Tree as she named it ,caught the eye of little Feng-Feng. He wanted a Shu just like that for his home.
His mother came to the school to see what had caused her only child to be so excited. Life for the Paul family changed dramatically.
This story is included in the collection A Wish for Christmas
“Teacher, can I take this shu to my house?” Feng-Feng asked Mrs.Paul the morning after she’d set up an imitation tree in her classroom. His legs splayed, eyes glued to the flickering bulbs, his right fist opening and closing in unison with the lights, the five year old boy seemed entranced. Mrs. Paul smiled. “If your mother can come to the school tomorrow, I’ll show her how to make one. We’ll keep this for the class. Okay.”
