About this item

Important Made in USA Origin Disclaimer: For certain items sold by Walmart on Walmart.com, the displayed country of origin information may not be accurate or consistent with manufacturer information.

A young boy grows to manhood and old age experiencing the love and generosity of a tree which gives to him without thought of return, in an anniversary edition of the classic book packaged with a CD read by the late author.

Once there was a tree . . . and she loved a little boy." So begins a story of unforgettable perception, beautifully written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein.

Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk . . . and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older, he began to want more from the tree, and the tree gave and gave.

Since it was first published fifty years ago, Shel Silverstein's moving parable for readers of all ages has offered an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return.

This is a great book for a young child, especially one learning to read. It is also an excellant book for a parent to be reading to a child. Very inspirational at any age.

This was the first book I ever read all by myself. I was four years old then, and I'm 19 now. I still remember the whole story. I loved it. I would recommend this book to anyone with a small child. I'm getting this book for my cousin's 4th birthday, this coming April...and I'm passing on the wonderful memories I had reading this book.

Great Book! This is a book that every child should have on their bookshelf. Parents and grandparents will love reading this book as it speaks about the circle of life. It has a durable cover and pages which should last a long time. A book that even your children will want to give it to their children as the time goes by.
