A few weeks ago I was in a writing training that was sponsored by my school district. The presenter shared a parody of the book, The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein. I totally love this book, but it always brings me to tears. Here is the very old 1974 version of the book in a animated film by none other than Shel Silverstein himself.
Here is a link to a hilarious parody that is entitled The Taking Tree. The best part is that the link goes to the author's site and the pdf version of the book is FREE! Click on the pic below for the FREE book.
