Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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:

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:

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.

Synopsis:

Once upon a mountaintop, three trees stood and dreamed of what they wanted to become when they grew up. Each of their dreams come true in the most unexpected of ways.

Libby_Lynn, December 6, 2007 (view all comments by Libby_Lynn)
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.
