The Book✯✯✯✯✯This is one of my absolute favorite Christian children's books. This particular edition is the most gorgeously illustrated by Tim Jonke, and I have loved it since I was a child. Now that I have a little one of my own, I love reading this story to her.
We follow three little growing trees that have very big dreams. All of them end up getting cut down to form much lesser versions of their dreams, but come to find out their seemingly humble purposes become staples in the Greatest Story Ever Told.
If you want a perfect Easter, Christmas, or every day story to tell your children about Christ in ways they will understand, this is your book. My little one is still very young and this keeps her entertained with all of the colors.
It is a longer story, though, and each page is filled with a solid block of text. If you have very young children, it may be better to break it up into bits before each bedtime.
Read this story on your own, first, because it goes to a place you don't actually realize it will.
