“The Giving Tree is a story of a boy and a tree and what happens as the boy grows up. As a child the boy spends his days playing with and swinging from the tree’s branches. As the boy grows into adulthood the tree sees less of the boy. When the tree does see the boy he is less interested with the tree and more fixed on the material things in life. The tree continues to provide what it can until there is nothing left but a stump. The tree is the ultimate example of unselfishness and love.
