The Tale of Three Trees by Angela Elwell Hunt

This is a folktale about three trees who grow together on a hillside. Each voices a dream: one wants to become a treasure chest, one wishes to be a strong sailing ship, and the last wishes to grow so tall that when people stop to look at me they will raise their eyes to heaven and think of God. When three woodcutters climb their hill, the first two trees believe they are about to fulfill their dreams, while the third is dismayed. But all three dreams will have a surprising fulfillment: The first tree becomes a manger for animals, which one day receives Jesus, the greatest treasure of the world. The second becomes a dirty fishing vessel, which carries Jesus as he hushes the wind and waves with his voice. The third becomes the Cross upon which Jesus is crucified -- so every time people thought of the third tree, they would think of God.

This lovely tale illustrates the truth that although Gods decisions regarding the lives of His creations may seem inscrutable, He is always working for good purposes (Romans 8:28). In having the trees as protagonists, the story also expresses that the creation, although marked by humanitys fallenness (Romans 8:19-21), yet expresses His design and purpose to glorify Himself (Revelation 4:11; Luke 19:40).

While the book does not present the full story of Jesus birth, death, and resurrection to restore humanity to God (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Peter 3:18), it is an excellent complement to the story. This would make a good addition both to your Christmas and Easter reading basket.
