The Giving Tree

the giving treeThis short children’s story by Shel Silverstein is one that people seem to either love or hate depending on their point of view. A boy is friends with a tree. The tree keeps on giving to the boy until it has nothing left to give. The boy does not give anything to the tree or even say thank you. You are left wondering if the closing line “And the tree was happy.” could possibly be true.
