From Shel Silverstein, New York Times bestselling author of Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic, comes a poignant picture book about love and acceptance, cherished for over fifty years. This classic is perfect for both young readers and lifelong fans.
 
"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. This moving parable for all ages offers a touching interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return.
 
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 and gave. This is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation.
 
The Giving Tree is a meaningful gift for milestone events such as graduations, birthdays, and baby showers.
 
Shel Silverstein's incomparable career as a bestselling children's book author and illustrator began with Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. He is also the creator of picture books including A Giraffe and a Half, Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?, The Missing Piece, The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, and the perennial favorite The Giving Tree, and of classic poetry collections such as Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Falling Up, Every Thing On It, Don't Bump the Glump!, and Runny Babbit plus Runny Babbit Returns.


 

或許你聽過這個故事:從前從前,有一棵樹……
很久很久以後……你一定會想再把這個故事讀給孩子聽
告訴孩子:真正的愛,是不求回報的付出
 
從前有一棵樹,她很愛一個小男孩……
每天,男孩都到樹下盪鞦韆、爬上樹幹吃起蘋果來,
男孩很愛這棵樹,非常的愛……樹很快樂。
 
時間一天天過去,男孩長大了。樹卻常常很孤單。
有一天,男孩來到樹下,他想擁有錢、房子、一艘船向外遠航。
樹一如往常,給予了她的一切,
樹很快樂,但,這不是真的……
 
很久很久以後,男孩又回來了。
「很抱歉,孩子,我的蘋果已經沒了。」樹說。
「我的牙齒也咬不動蘋果了,」男孩說。
「我的樹枝已經沒了,我真希望可以給你一些東西……
但我只是一株殘破的老樹根。很抱歉……」樹說。
「我現在只需要一個安靜的地方坐著休息。我好累好累。」男孩說。
「好的,殘破的老樹根正適合拿來坐著休息。來啊,孩子,坐下來休息。」
男孩坐了下來。
樹很快樂。
 
在謝爾.希爾弗斯坦筆下,創造了一幅幅感人至深的畫面,
