The Tale of the Three Trees
Retold by Angela Elwell Hunt

Review by: Mary Westbury

     This is a wonderful American Christian folktale about three trees that stand side by side on top of a mountain.  As they stand together, they dream about what they want to be when they grow tall and strong.
      The first tree says, "I want to hold treasure."  The second tree says, "I want to be a strong sailing ship." And the third tree says, "I want to grow so tall that when people stop to look at me they raise their eyes to heaven and think of God. I will be the tallest tree in the world!"
     After many years, the trees were eventually cut down. Each tree's dream comes true and each of them served a purpose that was "better than being the tallest tree in the world".  They were made into Jesus' manager (treasure), his fishing boat (strong sailing ship) and His cross.  Each become an important part of Jesus' life here on earth.
     This is a very moving and inspirational story that everyone can enjoy at Christmas, at Easter or anytime of the year.  It's a great book to pass on to family and friends.
