  • A Favorite!!!!!!!!!!
    By I am the boy. - November 9, 2009 -
    First, I can't believe the negative comments on this book! I have nothing but good to say about it. It's one of my favorite stories!

    There are a lot of different ways you can interpret this book I suppose. I like to think of it like our relationship with God. The tree is God and we are the little selfish child. We are selfish, sinful people and God continues to love us unconditionally. In the end we know the best place to be is in the presence of God. We all need to work on being more like the "tree" Read full review

    This book was given to my son when he turned 5, thruout the years we have moved and it has been misplaced. Recently he questioned me about it and said that he would really like to have his book back. I'm ordering it today to surprise him for his 23rd Birthday... Read full review
  • Love it and hate it
    By Bettina, Mother of 2 - August 7, 2008 -
    I cry when I read this book because it's sad. It has a good message about unselfish love and children will probably like it. However, it's so one-sided and selfish on the child's part that I think it sets a really bad example. The boy, as he grows older, continues to want something from the tree and the tree more or less gives up it's life for the boy. The boy never thanks the tree and only visits it when he wants something. I don't understand why this doesn't seem to bother anyone else. Read full review
