The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

If you haven't heard of The Giving Tree that I don't know where you've been. This story is a classic tale of a tree who gives a boy everything she has. This story to me allows you to teach children that there will be someone who is willing to give it all, but sometimes we need to stop and think about what taking these things does the others. I would honestly use this text in any grades K through 5.
