We've just finished reading this book over lunch.
This is a wonderful and meaningful picture book for Lent, Advent, or anytime in between. The Tale of Three Trees follows the desires of three little trees who dream of becoming a treasure chest, a strong sailing ship and a tree so tall that all will think of God when they see it pointing toward Heaven. You probably already know the fate of each of the trees, but your children may not guess.
It's a simple, beautifully illustrated book that helps children to see that God will answer our prayers, but not always in ways we can foresee.
