When the boy is little, the tree offers him everything. Fun. Friendship. Food. Their relationship is perfect.

But as the boy grows, his needs change. He's no longer looking for fun, friendship, or food; he wants more. And the more he wants, the more the tree gives. That's her way of loving. Yet the boy never seems happy, no matter how much he takes. Is there something he can learn from the tree?

From beloved author Shel Silverstein, this touching tale is a wonderful conversation-starter about love, hope, and what matters most.
