The Tale of Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale
Angela Ewell Hunt (retold by)
Tim Jonke, ill.
1989

This is a familiar story to many: three trees wishing for certain things are all used in the life of Christ. Along the way, their wishes get fulfilled in unexpected ways. The illustrations are wonderful. This folktale does a terrific job of covering the life of Christ from birth to death–it should be read year round, not just at Easter or Christmas.
