Book Review

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a wonderful book for a gift.  For young readers it is a valuable lesson about giving, sacrifice and selfishness.  For older readers it can be a great way to thank and encourage someone who has been a giver in your life or needs to become one.  You can find it at Barnes & Noble for about eighteen dollars and maybe cheaper online, but its worth it and will make a lasting impression for years to come on the gift receiver.  I received it as a gift from a friend at the age of nineteen with a little inscription written inside and I have it to this day at thirty-four years old.  Now I read it to my kids.  Very simple, but very powerful!  Vangy
