LibraryThing Review

User Review  - VClarke - LibraryThing

The Giving Tree is different than Shel Silverstein's poetry. This book is great for helping young readers to understand relationships and balance. This book can also be used in higher grades to help show personification through Silverstein's depiction of the tree. Very accessible. Read full review

This is a book about a boy who is growing up with a tree that gives the boy what he needs while he is growing. This story is a good starter to teaching students kindness and helping others is good. This would be for any grade level under 6th grade. Read full review
