The story begins by introducing three trees, each with its own grand dream. As the story progresses, the trees begin to question their purposes and wonder whether their dreams will come true. By the end, each tree realizes that not only are their dreams fulfilled, but they are fulfilled in unexpected ways.
While the book may be intended for children, the story's message appeals to readers of all ages. I purchased the board book version so that it would withstand the handling of my two toddlers. Because the pictures are not as bright and baby-friendly as what you would find in other books, and the story is an allegory, my then 18-month-old wasn't very interested in my reading it to her. Now that she is 2 1/2 and is familiar with stories about Jesus, she now asks questions about the pictures and listens as I explain that God created each of us for a special purpose and can use us in ways we never expected.
Also, the illustrations are gorgeous!
