Once upon a mountaintop, three little trees stood and dreamed of what they wanted to become when they grew up. Each of their dreams come true in an unexpected way in this lovely retelling of an old folk tale. This Lion classic, beloved by young and old, is now retold in simpler text for younger readers.
This is a very touching tale that is sure to become a holiday favorite. The beauty of the story is matched by the beauty of the illustrations. The story moves quickly enough to hold the attention of young readers while also having a depth that will inspire the heart of anyone reading.
I like this story. Sometimes we don't think our dreams are coming true. They certainly have a different look to them then how we envisioned them. Most often, however, the reality is much greater than what we could have dreamed up ourselves.
