The Giving Tree

The book the Giving Tree was read to me when I was in second grade. This book really changed me by giving me the sense of how much you could get out of something so little.

The way the tree gave so much to help one of his friends made me realize that I had not been making the brightest of choices to people, so after that I was nicer to the new kids and made long-lasting relationships with them.

The very well spoken words of Shel Silverstein led me and probably lots of other kids down a road of sharing and friendship.

A Powerful Message
by: Annie Desantis

Hi Lexi,

Thanks for a wonderful review, I particularly love getting reviews from kids, and I really liked that you said how this book touched you personally.

We loved this book too, but my kids were always sad that the tree gave so much, even its life.

I know of a family who give this book and a tree seedling to their friends newborn babies. I hope those babies grow up to be as wise as you from reading this lovely book.

Thank You :)

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
