The Three Trees is a charming book with lovely illustrations. I loved the message of hope and rebirth as each tree took on a new life as a significant item. I plan to give my children this book for Christmas, and I know that both my 8 and 5 year-olds will enjoy the story.From the publisher: 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.
