Decisions --- The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree
by Shel Silverstein

"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 is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation.  This book is for all ages offers readers an interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return.

I have bought this book many times as a gift and also for my own children....the message in this book is incredible and touching. 
Happy Holidays --

At Casa Youth Shelter we use a "Giving Tree" for presents to the kids on Christmas Day. The table-top Christmas Tree is covered in gift cards instead of ornaments. All of the gift cards have been donated by the community. The kids will draw numbers and take one card at a time off of the tree. Yesterday we had 5 youth in shelter.
