The Jesse Tree

The Jesse Tree

Author: Geraldine McCaughrean

Illustrator: Bee Willey

As Mr. Butterfield carves a Jesse Tree in a dusty old church, a curious young boy distracts him by asking about the various symbols on the tree. Against his inclination, the gruff old man finds himself retelling the familiar biblical tales that trace the family tree of Christ, from the Garden of Eden to Jesus' birth. Under the carpenter's skilled hands, the Jesse Tree grows and an unlikely friendship begins to take root as well.
