About the Book:

The Three Trees by  Catherine McCafferty is a classic story about following your dreams. An olive, oak and pine tree were all "planted" by different animals. "As each tree grew, it dreamed of what it would become." The olive tree dreamed of being a beautiful treasure chest to "hold the greatest treasure in the world." When it was made into a lowly manger knew it would Never hold a treasure. The oak tree wanted to be made into a mighty ship that would carry a king! Yet it became a little fishing boat. So the oak knew too his dream would Never come true. And finally the pine sitting high on the mountain desired to point people to God


But one night a fierce storm came and lightning splintered its trunk and as it came crashing down, so too its dreams. How could it point people to God now? Never! It was made into a piece of scrap wood. Years passed and God had His own plan.  A manger, a fishing boat, and a cross... each held the greatest treasure, the mightiest king and all point people to God.
I love this story because it really touched my heart! Sometimes the dreams we have for ourselves are much smaller than the dreams that God has for us. "If we follow God's path, we will travel far beyond even our greatest dreams." 5 stars!
