The givng tree
Shel Silverstein

Picture and Story Designed by Rebecca Shealey


    There is a litltle boy who loves to go visit a tree every day.  He loves to gather the leaves from the tree and and make a crown  and pretend he is king of the forest.  He also loves to climb the trunk and swing from the branches.  He eats the tree's apples and they play hide and seek together.    

    After all of the activities the boy takes a rest under the tree's shade.  They both love each other very much.

    As the boy gets older he does not visit the tree as often and the tree becomes sad.  

How will the little boy make the tree happy again?
