This has been one of my favorite books of all time. I am not sure if now I like this book as much as I liked it before. Since as we grow our perceptions of things change in our lives as much as the tree changes in this particular story. The story is about a boy and a tree. The tree loves the boy unconditionally and it literally gives everything that it can offer to the him. However, the boy is not as gracious as he should have been. He only remembers the tree only when in need of something. If you are in the mood to read something really sad than this book is for you. THE GIVING TREE by SHEL SILVERSTEIN is one that you will enjoy only if you are in a super happy mood, since after reading it you might not be as cheery as you might have wanted.

For grades four and up.
