Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. 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.
 
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

Synopsis:

The best-selling picture storybook—with over one million copies in print—three little trees see their dreams for greatness come true in surprising ways. Ages 4 and up.

Synopsis:

This Special 25th Anniversary Edition of The Tales of Three Trees is a limited-edition hard-cover gift book with a foil-embossed dust jacket. Perfect for any age.

Synopsis:

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. 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.

Synopsis:

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.

This book is one of the most touching Christmas books that I have ever read. I first heard about it when our Pastor (Beaverton Foursquare Church) read it to our congregation one Christmas eve service and displayed the pictures up on a large screen. The message is simple but profound. The pictures lead the reader to understand the message of Christ's birth and life in a very meaningful way. This is a book for families to enjoy for many years to come.
