The Giving Tree  April 26, 2011
by


This is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation. Shel Silverstein has created a moving parable for readers of all ages that offer an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return. The boy is not meant to be an example of good behavior - any child can see that. It is a story about how to give with all your heart. The boy is the only thing the tree ever loved. This story would only be tragic if the tree decided not to love fully and unconditionally. The textbook has a valuable lesson for children and adults; it is about sharing and caring for others.






Giving Tree: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

'Once there was a tree...and she loved a little boy.'

So begins a story of unforgettable perception, beautifully written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein.

Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk...and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older he began to want more from the tree, and the tree gave and gave and gave.

This is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation. Shel Silverstein has created a moving parable for readers of all ages that offers an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return.

This book is one of those few books that provides morals and lessons for all readers, and each time you reread it, you learn something different.

Ages 10+
