The Tale of Three Trees: by Angela Elwell Hunt
Author: Angela Elwell Hunt
|Once upon a mountaintop, three little trees stood and dreamed of what they wanted to become when they grew up...|
So begins this enchanting American folktale about three trees whose wishes come true in a surprising way.
Three trees growing on a hilltop dream of grand futures, but when they're claimed by woodcutters, other things happen. One becomes a manger that holds the Christ child, another a humble fishing boat that carries Jesus and his followers, and the third is cut into stout timbers that become Jesus' cross.
Angela Elwell Huntís ingenuous retelling of the timeless story will delight readers of all ages, and Tim Jonkeís luminous paintings bring a sense of depth and wonder to this classic tale.

Featuring the wonderful illustrations of Tim Jonke, this best-selling children's book tells the Easter story from a new and unusual point of view. Three trees on a mountain dream of what they wanted to become when they grew up. One wants to be a treasure chest, another an ocean-going boat, and the third a signpost to God. Their wishes come true in a way they never expected. Children will be deeply touched as they understand, perhaps for the first time, the significance of Christ's life and his atoning sacrifice on the cross.
