cover the giving treeThe Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. Originally published by Harper & Row in 1964. Hardcover with 64 pages. Black & white illustrations. Target age range is 4 – 8 years old.

Sometimes a picture book can contain a whole world. It is hard to put into words what I mean by that, but the story feels alive, it breathes. The Giving Tree is such a book – it’s a book about love and sacrifice, life and death, and everything in between. The story is beautiful, painful, and profound.

Available for purchase at Amazon & Barnes & Noble.
