The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein is one of my all-time favorite books for children. Why do I love it so much? Because The Giving Tree provides lessons in emotional education in a beautiful, and simple way. I also love that the pictures are in black and white, which allows some room for creative imagination.
Interactive Experience: Ask your child to find the boy. Throughout the book the “boy” is often hidden in the branches, finding him is a fun interactive way to make them apart of the reading experience.
