The Giving Tree is a wonderful picture book that promote gratitude, reflection and cause and effect.

The Giving Tree tells of the unconditional love of a tree and the selfishness of a boy. Over the course of the boy’s life, he asks the tree to help him and she gives him everything she has. “She loved a little boy very much – even more than she loved herself.” It is only as an old man he sees the trees compassion, generosity and friendship.
