The Three Trees- Elena Pasqualit

The Three Trees
A Traditional Folktale
Elena Pasquali

Breathtaking illustrations by Sophie Windham of the retelling of the traditional folktale The Three Trees.  Beautifully written tale of 3 trees who so desperately want to make their mark in  the world. They dream of being made into a treasure box full of riches, a powerful ship to carry a king, and of pointing the way to heaven. All lofty dreams that are met, in an untraditional way!

Superb tale for all seasons and honoring Jesus Christ. Enjoyed reading it to my young children and showing them how God has a plan for everything. That the trees had hopes and God still fulfilled them, just differently than the trees expecting, just like God will fulfill our dreams, just may be in a different way than we thought.

Thanks to Kregel for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
