The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

I love this book and the meaning behind it. The tree gives everything that it has to a boy who spends a majority of his life unappreciative. There is a big lesson to be learned in this book, even though it’s a short and simple read. This book’s meaning goes deeper than what you see on the pages, and that’s why it is so awesome.

 

 

In the classroom, this story would be great for teaching students about lessons, morals, and values.
