Beautifully illustrated in dusty, desert tones, The Third Gift follows a merchant and his son as they collect resin tears from trees---Myrrh---to sell to the market. One day, they find an unusually large tear, and at the market that day, they sell it to three men who are looking for an exceptional gift. A tale that conveys unique aspects of life at the time of Christ, as well as the background of Myrrh production and usage, this book presents a compellingly unique angle into the Christmas story. Hardcover with dust jacket.

The illustrations are superb. I loved the story, but did research to verify that the story line does follow how myrrh is ‘harvested’. I have already recommended it at church and have added it to our order. It answers the question that children –even adults- wonder about what is myrrh.
