The Giving Tree

    There once was a little boy who loved the tree and the tree loved him. The boy would always come and play on the tree. He would swing from the branches and climb on the tree.
   
    The boy began to grow up and later asked the tree for money. The tree did not have any money. Instead, the tree gave the boy his apples.

    As time went on, the boy came again to the tree and asked the tee for a home. The tree was unable to give the boy what he wanted. Instead, the tree gave his branches so the boy could build his house.

    What will happen to the boy and the tree as the boy gets older?
