The Tale of Three Trees A Traditional Folktale by Angela Elwell Hunt

Three young trees each make a wish. When they are felled, it seems as if all their dreams are over. But each is destined to play an important part in the life of Jesus, and in this their dreams are more than fulfilled. This moving tale, which provides an insight into the life of Jesus, is now available in an appealing mini sized format which brings new life to a top-selling classic retelling of a traditional tale.
