The Three Trees is a traditional folktale with which many are familiar but the joy of this particular version is the illustrations. Sophie Windham has created more than a picture book but rather a work of art to be enjoyed for years.
The beauty begins on the first page - Windham has created a three pane view of the trees but shown in all four seasons. The first panel shows the first tree in spring with soft colors, the center pane shows the next tree split between vivid summer colors and crisp fall tones and then finally the third tree in cool winter hues. Each page is as beautiful as the last.
