The Giving Tree is a beautiful book about a tree that loves a little boy. At the beginning of the story, Shel Silverstein explain the love that the tree and the boy share is enough to make them both happy. From the time the boy is young and needs shade as he plays to growing up and being allowed to climb in her branches to the time when he is older and wants something that may mean the end of the tree, the tree keeps on giving to him- out of love. Though there are many ways to interpret this story, the true message of love shines through.
