The Giving Tree
A heartwarming and insightful tale about the bond between a tree and a boy. As the boy grows, so do his desires, and the tree selflessly provides. Shel Silverstein's poignant story explores the beauty and power of giving and receiving love. Suitable for all ages, this book is a touching reminder of the joy found in generosity.
