  1. Great choices Ruth! I really loved the video too. My husband came to see what I was watching :-). When I was little I always said I was going to have a brick house so the wolf couldn’t blow it down (I do).

    Isn’t it interesting how many children’s books are in Threes. I had never thought of it before.

    How about The Three Wise Men a.k.a. The Three Kings? (I’m sure they have the statues from a nativity scene –although they’re probably packed away by now. Not everyone leaves their Christmas decorations up all year!)

  9. Trinity is powerful in history (and therefore in literature) – a very cool and clever representation of this photo challenge!

  10. Love this! I’d never really thought about how many trios populate our children’s books and tales. This was a great way to respond to the challenge/
