Vivid visual imagery brings this classic legend to life. Told simply, in language even the youngest family members will understand, the story begins with three young trees who dream - as all children do - of doing big deeds.
When the woodcutters come, the trees each find that the reality of their existence doesn't match their dreams... and yet...
This touching story contains a simple lesson about God's Plan for every life, told in a way that will touch hearts. Narrated by Hal Holbrook.
Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5April 17, 2014FitzysmomGet ready to curl up with your little one and enjoy a beautiful tale about God's plans for you told through a classic folktale! The animated video will take you through the lifecycle of three different trees. From how they were planted and grown to what they desired to be used for to their final destination.
At first all three of the trees are disappointed in how their destiny turned out, but then they realize that what they were designed to do really is an important job. Without them the story would be different.
Of course this is a parable type of story and the real theme is that God always has a plan and a purpose for everything. He does things in His own way and in His own timing. We are reminded that sometimes the dreams that we have for ourselves are much smaller than the dreams God has for us. What at first seems insignificant, in the end is very pivotal. The most important part is that no matter what we become it is important as long as we are being used for His purpose.
The animation is absolutely charming and the narration by Hal Holbrook is soothing and draws you in. One of my favorite things is the two original songs. The first is called The Tree and it is sung by Marilyn McCoo and the second is He'll Never Give Up On You which is sung by Andy Chrisman from 4Him. If you are like me you'll be humming the tunes in your head for hours afterwards.
I received a copy of this DVD to facilitate my review.

Nicole5 Stars Out Of 5April 9, 2010NicoleThis is a must for every Christian family's DVD collection. Not so much b/c of the quality of animation, but for the story. Every person has great aspirations in life that don't always turn out the way they had imagined, but we can rest assured that God has something greater and of higher significance in store for us! A great message for children and adults alike.
