Book Description:

The Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale by Elena Pasquali, illustrated by Sophie Windham

Three forest trees dream of what they will one day become. One dreams of becoming a royal throne; one of being a ship that can withstand any storm; and one longs to stay in the forest and grow as tall as tall can be. When they are felled, it seems their dreams are over. But as each tree is crafted into a new item--a manger, a fishing boat, and a rugged cross--it becomes clear that through the role they play in one important life their hopes are more than fulfilled.

My Thoughts: This is one of my all time favorites! I read this to my girls when they were little and I read this one to my Granddaughter Lily. The beautiful story of this book is not just for children, it is for young and old alike. Three trees have dreams and when they are cut down it seems as though their dreams are over. As each are crafted by a craftsman they still don't think their special or their dreams have been fulfilled. Soon their role becomes clear and their dreams were more than fulfilled.
