The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

I like this book because it teaches about unconditional love. The tree gave the little boy everything he wanted and asked for even though the tree never got anything in return. I could use this in my classroom by reading the book and then giving them all an apple and place nice things in the apple about their unconditional towards others. I would then hang the apples on our classroom tree and place in the hall for all to see. The activity could help them see that we should be nice to other people. The reading level I feel this falls under is 3rd to 5th grade. The Lexile Level is 530L.
