Must Read Monday: The Tale of Three Trees

The Tale of Three Trees is an old folktale retold by Angela Hunt.  Three trees on a hill dream of what they will become. One dreams of being a treasure chest, another dreams of being a mighty ship, the third wants to become the tallest tree on the hill. But none of them become what they imagined. The first tree becomes a common feed box for farm animals, the next becomes a common fishing boat, and the third tree becomes wood beams. As the years pass they almost forget the dreams they once had. One night, the first tree becomes a manager for a little baby boy. The tree realizes that it is holding the most precious treasure in the world, Jesus.

    1. Thanks for sharing that with me! Very cool!

  2. Great book! My father-in-law read it aloud to the whole family a few years back at Easter. My boys still remember it.

    1. This was one of the first books I bought my son after he was born. It is so much more than a story.
