Book of the Week: The Giving Tree

I’ve been a long-time fan of Shel Silverstein, but this book is one of his classics, and I’m glad my daughter loved it as much as I did. The Giving Tree is the age old story of what man takes from nature, and what nature happily gives to man. Of course you can take some serious “going green” junk away from it’s storyline, but it is in fact a sweet story with the most charming of illustrations. I thought Tu B’Shvat was the perfect time to introduce her to Shel and his magical drawings…
