Getting harder to find! An excellent book on how you can give no matter how small you are. Sometimes life doesn't seem like it will be what we wanted it to be.....BUT, life turns out to be just what you need. Enjoy your life!

Needing a book to read to my grandson at nap time, I pulled this one from his collection... This book brought tears to my eyes! It's wonderfully illustrated, & beautifully written.I was surprised at the depth of emotion this brought. Highly recommend this book to everyone who has children & those who do not.I'll be looking for more books from this Author.

I love this book! My family reads it each year around Christmas time. It tells of the dreams that 3 trees have. Neither of the trees become what they had hoped for but in the end they were still important. It teaches that God can make much more out of us than we can make out of ourselves.

This order was placed by phone through our Southcenter store. I ordered four with each one to be sent to a separate address. All were received and much appreciated. Very efficient handling by Barnes and Noble. Thank you!

I always give this book to a child at his/her baptism. It is such a meaningful book about God's plan for us and the gift of His Son to me. I would read others books by this author.

This book is one of my new favorites. It took me by surprise the first time I read it, and I ended it in a puddle of tears. I love to read this story to chidren when i have their attention because the biblical correlations are made so beautifully. It is a must read.

As a family, we've read and re-read this book many times. We used to read it to our children, now they read it aloud to us and to our visitors! I've given this book numerous times as a baby shower gift and it is always well received. Enjoy!

I plan on giving this book to EVERY Roman Catholic I know. Wonderful for bringing into the religious classroom for discussion. Short enough to read to a toddler. Teaches important life lessons. An inspiring story that is as insightful as it is unforgettable.

This book reminds me that God has a plan for me. His plan is far-better than what I can imagine. When things don't go the way I'd like them to, all I have to do is change my thinking and consider the experience a blessing. It is then I will understand its' purpose, and God's plan will be revealed. All things work for good for those who love the Lord. Amen!

For three little trees who dream of what they will be someday - a holder of treasure, a fine ship, a hilltop beacon pointing to God - life proves to have something rather different in store. They are disappointed that their lives are so mundane. And, as the years pass, 'the three trees nearly forgot their dreams.' Yet each eventually gets its wish, although not in the way it had foreseen. When that happens, each discovers that things turned out just the way they should have. This is a moving and eloquent story. Its illustrations are simple yet powerful. Readers will be reminded that God has plans for every one of his creations, that He never loses sight any of us. Children will learn that when they don't get what they want, it may be because something even better is in store for them. Adults will understand the concept of true happiness coming when we align our will with God's. Those who enjoy 'Trees' may also enjoy another picture book: Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee - A Bee's Bit of Wisdom. It concerns a young girl who is uncertain of her abilities, but forges ahead regardless. Books like Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee and The Tale of Three Trees are valuable tools in teaching children that God has a special plan for each of us, and through patience, persistence and faith amazing rewards will be revealed.

This is a book that teaches that it is ok for things to go different than how you planned. Life is what happens while we are making plans. This is a must gift for teenagers and a great shower gift.

I was working as a babysitter at the time I read the tale of the three trees. The little girl I was keeping recieved it as a gift from her nanny.I had no idea what I was about to read. It grabbed at my heart from the time I read the first word. It is a very inspiring book not only for a christian to read but anyone else who wants to be uplifted.

I have only seen and read this book once (On March 2002) and I will never forget it. My family and I were playing a tongue twisting game the day before with the words three trees. The next day, my neighbor who recently had a baby son name Refeal, received this book as a gift and he shared it with me. I had no idea what I was about to read, but as the pages turned I could see the Lord's hand at work. Great first book!

One of the sweetest books I have ever read. It gives me goosebumps every time I read it. It is comforting to know that, though we may not understand it at the time, God has a plan for all of us. A wonderful gift for anyone!

I first read this book as a teacher in a christian daycare. Immediately I fell in love. It's simple telling of the tree's dreams for their future and how God had something better for them is a great reminder that God has something better for us than what we want for ourselves.
