Just in time for Christmas, Easter or any day, comes the beloved and beautifully illustrated folktale of The Three Trees by Elena Pasquali.

Long ago, on a hill, three trees reached up to the sky and dreamed of the wonderful things they would do. All were cut down, and each in turn believed that their dreams had come to nothing. Then, when their rough timber played its part in the life of Jesus, everything changed.

This is a wonderful children's book that tells the tale of the fate and dreams of three trees that envisioned a different life that just being mere trees, and each one shares their hopes and dreams in this wonderful book. Little do they know that the men who come to cut them down have other plans. Just when each thinks they have nothing to offer the world, they each realize a greater purpose other than their original dreams and God's greater purpose.

I received this book compliments of Kregel Publications for my honest review and LOVED it! The message is so beautifully told and that sometimes what we want for our lives and what ends up happening in the end, defines our perspective on God's will in our life, and sometimes we can't always see the greater good until we give it time to sink in. I would rate this book a perfect 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to share this with my own kids and grandkids!
