The Giving Tree

I saw this as Maven's blog last week, and it moved me so much, I had to share it with the rest of you.



I likely saw it as a kid as it was released in 1973, and I just don't remember it.

I can't watch it, because I will start crying if I do...

Shel is the man.

what a beautiful story.

Megan: Ah, but knowing that is half the battle most of the time.

Arjan: It was, wasn't it. Again, I have to thank Maven for posting it first.

I was going to say exactly what Megan did. I haven't seen the cartoon in ages, but I read the book many times. Can't wait to share it with my baby girl.

The book always gets to me-no matter how many times I have read it! I had not seen it in "video form" but it gives a whole new dimension to the story's simple, melancholy prose.
