“Once there was a tree…and she loved a little boy.”

So begins a story of unforgettable perception, beautifully written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein. This moving parable for all ages offers a touching interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another’s capacity to love in return.

Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk…and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older he began to want more from the tree, and the tree gave and gave and gave. This is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation.

He is also the creator of picture books including A Giraffe and a HalfWho Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?The Missing PieceThe Missing Piece Meets the Big O, and the perennial favorite The Giving Tree, and of classic poetry collections such as Where the Sidewalk EndsA Light in the AtticFalling UpEvery Thing On ItDon’t Bump the Glump!, and Runny Babbit.

The Authors

The Giving Tree PDF “And now, children, your Uncle Shelby is going to tell you a story about a very strange lion- in fact, the strangest lion I have ever met.” So begins Shel Silverstein’s very first children’s book, Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. It’s funny and sad and has made readers laugh and think since it was published in 1963. It was followed the next year by three more books. The first of them, The Giving Tree, is a moving story about the love of a tree for a boy. Shel returned to humor the same year with A Giraffe and a Half, delighting readers with a most riotous ending. The third book in 1964 was Uncle Shelby’s Zoo Don’t Bump the Glump! and Other Fantasies, Shel’s first poetry collection, and his first and only book illustrated in full color. It combined his unique imagination and bold brand of humor in this collection of silly and scary creatures. Shel’s second collection of poems and drawings, Where the Sidewalk Ends, was published in 1974. His recording of the poems won him a Grammy for best Children’s Album. In this collection, Shel invited children to dream and dare to imagine the impossible, from a hippopotamus sandwich to the longest nose in the world. With his next collection of poems and drawings, A Light in the Attic, published in 1981, Shel asked his readers to turn the light on in their attics, to put something silly in the world, and not to be discouraged by the Whatifs. Instead he urged readers to catch the moon or invite a dinosaur to dinner- to have fun! A Light in the Attic was the first children’s book to break onto the New York Times Bestseller List, where it stayed for a record-breaking 182 weeks. The last book that was published before his death in 1999 was Falling Up (1996). Like his other books, it is filled with unforgettable characters. Shel Silverstein’s legacy continued with the release of a new work,Runny Babbit, the first posthumous publication conceived and completed before his death and released in March 2005. Witty and wondrous, Runny Babbit is a poetry collection of simple spoonerismsH, which twist the tongue and tease the mind. Don’t Bump the Glump! And Other Fantasies was recently reissued in 2008 after being unavailable for over 30 years. Shel was always a believer in letting his work do the talking for him–few authors have ever done it better.

Rihard C. La Bella “My wife and I were joined in a nearly two year battle with a disease that wanted to take her from me. As the season of giving neared, she asked me to purchase a gift for me that would be from her. She was too weak to go out any longer. I was in a Book Sellers thinking I would purchase a gift card for her to give to me. I passed a display and saw a flash of red and green. They were my wife’s favorite colors. I looked closer and saw the little boy, the apple, and the giving tree. Without even opening it I knew this would be from her to me. When we exchanged gifts she looked at it and smiled. Without a word, I held and put it in a quiet place to be read again at a special time.
On the early morning of January 31st, while I held and kissed her gently, she left the field of battle.
This morning I re-read her gift to me and actually, Mr. Silverstein, your gift to us.
My wife Vincenza (Vincy) of almost 45 years was my giving tree.
Now as a old man I sit where she rests. I dream and remember.
As always, Richard La Bella.”
Sharon Klemm “This book went into the trash. I couldn’t make myself put it in the Goodwill box bc I did not want to promote this ugly, ugly message of greed with no end, this nasty kid who grows up into a nasty adult who successfully kills the thing who is willing to give and give and give for his self interest. Classic American story of our relationship with the the natural world. Of course, it calls into question a tree that apparently has no self respect, and never says, “No, enough.” But, that’s not how this story is told. I guess in the right hands, it could impart some powerful lessons, but I am not convinced that people take the time to seriously contemplate these kinds of ideas anymore. On the surface, it is just an ugly story about unfettered greed, a me, me, me mentality, no regard for anything but self, a stupidity that destroys, and a self destructive tree with no sense of self preservation. The whole thing was bad karma from beginning to end. It met the recycle bin within 10 minutes of getting here. F and shame on you Silverstein for writing such a garbage story. Giving? Yea. Right. This book should go out of print and some of the decent stuff that was written for kids should go back in. Just totally disgusted over here.”
snowflake gramma “Whenever I am invited to a baby shower, this is always a gift from my husband & myself. I have even chose this book as a house warming gift.
Like movies, books of all kinds are very personal. What I mean is everyones perception of what they are viewing , in this case reading are very different.
All that I can honestly say about this book, what some people say is “controversial” is it ;
touches on feelings
teaches about selfishness
teaches about selflessness
teaches about caring
teaches about giving
this book really tugs at all the emotions everyone goes through one time or another. Or even all at once.
It has turned into a discussion book for all my grandkids. Through your own eyes, minds & hearts is how each person feels & experiences when they read this book, or has it read to them.
The book is a hardback & comes with a cover resembling the cover of the book. There are only 30 pages to these book. The illustrations are clean & simple black drawings on crisp white pages. These pages aren’t numbered, just clean illustrations.
I hope this review helped.
I keep my copy in our livingroom, it’s there always.”
