A boy swings in the branches of his favorite tree when he is very young. Later, as an adult, he uses the same branches to build a house and the tree's trunk to build a ship. Many years pass and the faithful tree fears she will never again see the boy, but he returns as an elderly man to be with his old friend.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is so cute and entertaining yet teaches lessons on unselfishness at the same time. Your kids or students will want to hear this story over and over and remember it into adulthood.
I have read and listened to many a book within my childhood, but never quite that grasped me with feelings as 'The Giving Tree' did. As the daugther of an immigrant mother, she provided me with literature that was just as good in spanish as it was in english as the meanings came out from each and every word the very same way. This story is told beautifully in whatever language it's brought in and I sincerely can't wait to bring the same emotions to my daughter as my mother brought to me with reading this book.
