The Three Trees~Book Review

The Three Trees A Traditional Folktale by Elena Pasquali, Illustrated by Sophie Windham. This story is a classic folktale told from the perspective of three trees and their dream of what they want to be one day.

The first tree dreams of being a wonderful chest that will hold a great treasure. The second tree dreams of being a great ship that will carry a great king and the third tree dreams of staying just where it is and pointing to heaven. 

What happens to these trees is much different than their expectations but they each realize that what they end up being serves a much greater purpose then they could ever imagine.

The Three Trees is a wonderful story.  The illustrations in the book are just beautiful! This story is a wonderful example of no matter how plain or how humble we are that God can use us to glorify His kingdom. The Three Trees would make a wonderful gift for children and adults alike!

disclosure: I received this book from Kregel in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was received.
