Item Description...
A young boy grows to manhood and old age experiencing the love and generosity of a tree which gives to him without thought of return.

Publishers Description
A boy swings in the branches of his favorite tree when he is very young. Later, as an adult, he uses the same branches to build a house and the tree's trunk to build a ship. Many years pass and the faithful tree fears she will never again see the boy, but he returns as an elderly man to be with his old friend.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A very especial book  Apr 6, 2007
This is one of the most beautiful stories I have read . It will touch your heart .
El árbol masoquista y el niño egocéntrico   Oct 28, 2006
After reading all the 5 star reviews for its spanish version, I bought this book for my kids . I am SO sorry I did not see the reviews for the English version (which include some 1 star reviews) before buying it.
I was horrified when I read the story. My kids like it but I am thinking about getting rid of this book soon, before my kids are able to understand its message.
This book is pathetic. It is about a tree that is willing to give absolutely everything he has in order to make the boy happy. The tree would represent the love of a mother who is willing to give everything for her child. But enough is enough. Sometimes a mother has to say NO. If you really love your child you are not going to let them become the child in the book. It is not a lesson to teach your child... you should not give and give and give them everything they ask for. Children need to be able to feel empathy toward others and they have to be able to meet their own needs eventually. The boy just goes to visit the tree when he needs something and shows NO appreciation, no gratefulness, no emotion toward the tree that is giving him absolutely everything he has.
I could not believe my eyes when I saw how the tree kept self mutilating until it had nothing else to give to the ungrateful, selfish, egocentric boy. The boy represents a spoiled child that is uncapable of feeling any empathy or love for the one that loves him so much. They boy simply went to visit the tree over and over again, each time asking for something he needed to satisfy his own needs, and then left with the trees apples, branches, trunk, without even saying thank you.
I know this book is popular but think about it before buying it to your child... Popular is not always good. Read it, think about the message it gives and please, DO NOT read it to your children. The world does not need more people like the little boy in the book...
Excellent book for children and adults  Mar 1, 2001
This book wraps up many beautiful teaching about life. It is excellent for people of all ages and from all over the world. I highly recommend this book.
The Meaning of Being a Parent  Dec 4, 2000
I love this book! This book is the story of all the things that a parent provides for their child: love, attention, and comfort. The tree is the "parent" and gives to the child all that it can, until it has no more to give and what a parent expects in return...the child's happiness, in order to be happy.
I loved the book ,I'm 29, I cried when I read it ....  Apr 29, 1999
I'm a mother of two , Just got the book ,I have been reading it to them every night. It breinges tears to my eyes every time I read it ...I know I'll keep this book for ever ..not just for my kids but even for thier own kids ....
