Told simply, in a language even the youngest family members will understand, this story begins with three young trees who dream-as children do-of doing big deeds. Yet when the woodcutters come, the trees each find that the reality of their existence doesn't match their dreams.

This is a timeless retelling of the classic folktale of three distinct trees, each with its own hopes, dreams and aspirations. We follow a beautiful olive tree blossoming in the valley, a knotty oak tree clinging to the shore and a strong pine standing high on the moutainside. They each dreamed of becoming great. Not as they had wished, but they did have significance in God's plan for the world.

The Legend Of The Three Trees is a superbly produced, animated folktale of three distinct trees (an Oak, an Olive, and a Pine) and the roles they played in the story of Jesus. Each tree began with their own particular dreams and aspirations -- but met with what seemed to be bitter disappointment, only to emerge with truly unique roles in "the greatest story ever told". Hal Holbrook's narration is nothing short of masterful, the quality of the animation is flawless, and the story is totally engaging from beginning to end. The Legend Of The Three Trees (VHS, 30 minutes, full color) is a wonderful addition to family, parochial school, and community library video collections for young viewers.

Thoughtfully written tale that teaches children and adults the significance of God's plan in their life.The Legend of The Three Trees is a timeless retelling of the classic folktale of three distinct trees, each with its own hopes, dreams and aspirations. We follow a beautiful olive tree blossoming in the valley, a knotty oak tree clinging to the shore and a strong pine standing high on the mountainside. They each dreamed of becoming great - perhaps a majestic treasure chest, or a magnificent sailing ship or maybe the tallest tree in the forest.

But their dreams didn't seem to come true. Disappointed and dejected, the trees despair about their existence until they each finally interact, in their own unique ways, with Jesus Christ in His birth, ministry and ultimate sacrifice. In these experiences, they learn that God has a special purpose for each of them in His kingdom.

Thoughtfully written and beautifully animated, The Legend of The Three Trees teaches children and adults alike the significance of their role in God's plan for the world.
