“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.
Each of their dreams come true in an unexpected way.
Angela Elwell Hunt’s ingenuous retelling of this timeless story, with illustrations by Tim Jonke has delighted readers of all ages for twenty-five years.
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 which we celebrate at Easter.
“I never dreamed God would use Trees in this way … All across the world, the Spirit of God is still touching the hearts of men, women, and children with this simple book. I am grateful, but to Him be the glory and honor and praise.” –Angela Hunt
“…hauntingly retold folktale about three trees that grow up to be Jesus’ manger, boat, and cross represents the best…” — Christian Retailing Magazine
