Thank you Mystery Reader
Last week, we welcomed our latest mystery reader just before the March Break.
It was Joseph’s mom! She read to us a favourite book of her family’s called The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. Shel is also the author of many other popular books and poems including the book Where the Sidewalk Ends.
Many of us have heard of or read The Giving Tree before. It’s one of those stories that is a classic and is one of my personal childhood favourites. The message in the story never gets old. As we are in the season of Lent, this book serves as a nice reminder of the importance of giving to others and about making connections with others (and nature!). In class we talked about how it feels when we give to others and the different ways in which we can give to others.
Have you read The Giving Tree? What do you think is the message of the book?
Thank you, Joseph’s mom for sharing this beautiful story with us!
