crazy, weird, UNIQUE!



THE GIVING TREE was one of my favorite books when I was younger. I think I liked it just because it was simple and I remember one of the teachers (whom I loved) read it to my class. I really loved when teachers read to the class. Does that even happen anymore? Anyway! I’m getting off focus here. Looking at it now, this book by Shel Silverstein is really a sad story of one taking advantage of another. The tree is all used up, but that is what the tree wanted— to give all it could throughout this boy’s life—and the boy takes it! The boy never really appreciates the tree in the story, he just took what it had for him.

The book reminds me that we should give of ourselves like the tree, but what’s more important is that we appreciate those “trees” in our lives. Look around and find those that help you and support you no matter what. Make sure they KNOW you appreciate them. We should always be thankful. It really is just as important as GIVING.
