Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A wonderful easy way of relating the life of three trees to three different episodes in the life of Christ.
Starting with the ambitions for each of the three trees and how in a round-about way their dreams are fulfilled when one becomes the manger, one his sailing boat and one the cross in His crucifixion.

Beautifully written and illustrated and easy for a child of any age to understand at their own level.
I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
Three trees on a hill dream their different dreams, as the seasons go by and they grow and flourish. When they are felled and used, they all think their high expectations are not going to come true - but each, in its own way, takes its part in the greatest story ever told. This is a beautifully told story that really got me emotionally involved. it would make a wonderful assembly/Sunday School story and will give rise to plenty of discussion on the differing ways in which dreams can come true. A real message of hope and faith. The illustrations by Sophie Windham are quite stunning and full of detail, which again leads to discussion. This book succeeds on so many levels - a picture book, a storybook, a moral tale... but above all, a story of hope.

The story of this book is simple, and understandable by small children - it is much enhanced by the delightful illustrations - every page has a charming and colourful image, sometimes with decorative borders. Isabelle, aged 4, enjoyed it and has asked for it again and again
