The Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale ~ A Review

the three trees


The Three Trees:A Traditional Folktale is a delightful book written by Elena Pasquali and Illustrated by Sophie Windham. 

This folktale is about three trees and their dreams for their future: one wanted to be a beautiful treasure chest, the second wanted to be a king’s ship, and the third wanted to remain a tree “…here on the hillside, pointing to heaven.”  While the trees’ hopes for their futures do not come true exactly as planned…their dreams do come true even better than they planned.

My Thoughts

The inside front cover of this beautifully illustrated hardcover book describes The Three Trees as “[a] tale of hope and faith for Christmas, Easter, and always.”  I found that to be a very apt description for this lovely book.

I loved the vibrant folksy illustrations and the wonderful message behind this folktale.

More Information

The Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale is available for purchase on the Kregel Publications website for $14.99.
