    A librarian read this to me in my old days... Pre-school? Pre-K? I’m not sure. I have always remembered this book but have not ordered it yet, but I’m going to. The boy and the tree, it has been stuck in my mind, which is good. This book reminds me of my dead hamster and fish, who I always have loved and hoped to see again. It reminds me of my family, my relatives, all the way to great-great-great-great grandparents. I have not even known my great-grandparents, but I wish to see them someday. The Giving Tree teaches kids to love their moms, their dads, brothers, sisters, pets, aunts, uncles, grandmothers, grandfathers, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, all until the earliest days. The Giving Tree is way better than The Taking Tree, which is a similar but badder book than The Giving Tree. I have a ancient tree in my yard, which was there since when my father was a boy. My house, where my grandfather used to live, the USA, Ohio, where I live, where I was born, where I was baptized.... *sniff* all the memories........ All so sad, having relatives across the ocean,....... this brings memories to children, too, and brings friends and family closer.
