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.
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.
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.
Featuring the wonderful illustrations of Tim Jonke, this best-selling childrens 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 Christs life and his atoning sacrifice on the cross.
