The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

Lexile Level: 530L



The Giving Tree is a heartfelt story about a tree who loved a young boy. The boy took everything that the tree had to offer and the tree was always there to make the boy happy. In this story, the boy ages and the tree transforms down to a stump, but the boy always returns to the tree, and the tree always loves the boy.

I would use this book in a kindergarten to 4th grade classroom. In a classroom I would use this book to have  discussions on giving and receiving, emotions, patience, kindness, and unconditional love. Children can learn about the importance of caring, giving, and how we should treat others
