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.

Our customer reviews

Three trees in the forest each have a different dream of what they want to become, and when they are cut down it seems as if their dreams just might be lost, but alas they are handcrafted into items that will be used by the king of kings, allowing them to full fill their dreams. "Three Trees" is a book your children will want to reread, with it's captivating illustrations and powerful message of never giving up on your dream, and how God often allows us to achieve more than we can ever imagine. It's truly a book that would be a great read any time of the year but extra special at Christmas or Easter. Because it is a beautiful hard bound dust jacketed edition it would also make a lovely gift. A complimentary copy of this book was provided by Kregel Publications for review."show more
