This enchanting American folktale shares the story of three trees whose dreams for greatness come true - but in very surprising ways. The first young tree dreams of becoming a beautiful, jewel-encrusted treasure chest, fit to hold the world's most magnificent treasure. The second tree wishes to be crafted into the strongest ship in the world, and carry powerful kings. And the third tree dreams of growing into the tallest tree in the world so that all her see her would raise their eyes to heaven and think of God.
After many years wood cutters come to the mountaintop of the three trees. At first it seems none of their dreams will come true. We don't want to spoil the magnificent ending, so we'll just say that this is a must-have for your family library! It is splendidly told, superbly illustrated and perfect for Lenten reading. Ages 5-10, Hardcover, 28 pages, 8½" x 11".
