I can recommend this post on Medium: https://medium.com/unicorn-supplies/angular-vs-react-vs-vue-a-2017-comparison-c5c52d620176

Ultimately, which framework is "better" is a very subjective thing, not only depending on your preference but on the project you're working on. If you have a simple website with a few static pages, you probably don't need any or might be using jQuery. If your website is more of an application or has lots of re-used pieces of code, a framework like React/Angular/Vue becomes an option.

I think Treehouse added React because it's a framework that has grown a lot over the last few years and is quite popular. Vue.js is growing quickly as well and is said to be easier to start with, plus their website gives very usable examples. Haven't looked into Angular much myself either, but it's been around for a bit and is quite in demand as well. Plus it being around for a bit means there are plenty resources to go around.
