Against his better judgment, the old man finds himself retelling the familiar Biblical tales that trace the lineage of Christ, from the Garden of Eden to Jesusb birth. Under the carpenterbs skilled hands, the Jesse tree grows -- and an unlikely friendship begins to take root as well.Geraldine McCaughreanbs fresh retellings of familiar Bible events and Bee Willeybs whimsical and striking illustrations create a rich and contemporary tale, perfect for reading during Advent or anytime. "The Jesse Tree" will captivate readers who know and love the Bible stories as well as those who are reading them for the first time.
