Like movies, books of all kinds are very personal. What I mean is everyones perception of what they are viewing , in this case reading are very different.
All that I can honestly say about this book, what some people say is "controversial" is it ;
touches on feelings
teaches about selfishness
teaches about selflessness
teaches about caring
teaches about giving
this book really tugs at all the emotions everyone goes through one time or another. Or even all at once.
It has turned into a discussion book for all my grandkids. Through your own eyes, minds & hearts is how each person feels & experiences when they read this book, or has it read to them.
The book is a hardback & comes with a cover resembling the cover of the book. There are only 30 pages to these book. The illustrations are clean & simple black drawings on crisp white pages. These pages aren't numbered, just clean illustrations.
I hope this review helped.
I keep my copy in our livingroom, it's there always.
📖THANKS FOR READING, BYE📚
The Giving Tree is a children's picture book written and illustrated by Shel Silverstein. First published in 1964 by Harper & Row, it has become one of Silverstein's best known titles and has been translated into numerous languages. Wikipedia
Originally published: October 7, 1964
I think if a child truly is upset over the tree getting old and being alone and having not much left, a parent, teacher, or whoever the reader is can discuss it with the child. They can talk about giving to those in need, etc.
I think it is a wonderful story of love. I have given it as a gift typically to someone as a thank you gift for all they have done for to, to show that I recognize what they do. (Even though the boy doesn't give back in the book, it did not scar me for life or turn me into an ungrateful person!!!)
I think everyone should read this story, and form their own opinion. As for me, I will continue to pass it on!
