LOVE this book. A very sweet tale that is reminescent of the "Legend of the Dogwood" you might have heard.

A beautifully illustrated folk-story story of three trees and what the dream to become and what they do become: one grows up to be Jesus' manger, another a boat Jesus rode in, and the last a cross represents the best message of the resurrection of Christ. Children will be deeply touched as they understand, perhaps for the first time, the significance of Christ's life and his atoning sacrifice on the cross. The pictures are absolutely beautiful. This book is a must read - from parent to children or for the child to read alone.

There are several different versions of this story. In Catherine McCafferty's version of the folk-tale the trees are different types and have different strengths. In this story they are all the same but the message still comes plainly across. I would say this one is for younger readers. Folk-tales are often told in various ways.

A retelling of the traditional folktale of how three trees were used to be the manger for Baby Jesus, a fishing boat used by the Apostles and the cross on which Jesus was crucified.

My granddaughter and I just finished this book and it was wonderful. 5 stars do not begin to do it justice. I had a hard time reading this as I teared up several times.
