The Giving Tree - Review

Updated on November 20, 2011

My Review of "The Giving Tree"

The Giving Tree is a story of a boy and a tree and what happens as the boy grows up. It shows unselfishness and love toward another. It has a message for both the child and the parent reading the story. For the parent it helps to remind them that life passes by so quickly! Enjoy those around you every day. For the children it shows them that those that love you will always support you in everything you do.

A tale of the unselfish love of one "individual" to another.

      I read this book as a child and when I have my own kids I'll surely read it to them.

      Oh yes! I loved reading The Giving Tree to my children and now read it to my grands, as well!

          This is a wonderful book. I cannot believe that I haven't added it to our personal collection yet.
