“As soon as there was a tree . . . and he or she beloved a bit boy.” So begins a narrative of unforgettable notion, fantastically written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein.
Daily the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk . . . and the tree was pleased. However because the boy grew older, he started to need extra from the tree, and the tree gave and gave.
Because it was first printed fifty years in the past, Shel Silverstein’s transferring parable for readers of all ages has provided an affecting interpretation of the present of giving and a serene acceptance of one other’s capability to like in return.
