"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.

Since it was first published fifty years ago, Shel Silverstein’s moving parable for readers of all ages has offered an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another’s capacity to love in return.

"If you're looking for a children's book that teaches generosity or unselfishness, most people will point you right to The Giving Tree, Shel Silverstein's lovely story of a tree that will do anything for the boy it loves--and for good reason. This classic is always a good place to start."--Brightly
