The Giving Tree


The “Giving Tree” may be over 50-year-old, but the books’ lesson about love and selflessness is still as moving as ever. As a kid, we can love and appreciate the relationship between the boy and a tree. As an adult and re-reading the story of this tree who loves a little boy so much you realize that the fact that three is willing to give him everything is not only heartbreaking, but it provides a controversial look at the cost of unconditional love.

After re-reading this book again you will be left with so many questions about the nature of giving and gifts, happiness, and the nature of love, but when you discuss and answer them either with yourself or with others, I promise you’ll be much better for it.
