This paper makes me so happy to read. I just got it back from school. He wrote it in November, but his teacher wanted to keep it for a while. She said it brought her to tears, just how grown up it sounded. He wrote this all on his own! As you can see, Skyler was blessed with mine and Jeremy's "lovely" handwriting skills, poor kiddo! I typed the content below since it is hard to read on the computer.
"The Giving Tree a ficticious story by Shel Silverstein is a fabulous book about a lifelong relationship between a needy, greedy, selfish boy and an unselfish tree. This story takes place outside in a forest. The events unfold from the boys life beginning at boyhood moving all the way to his senior years.
This story has a wonderful moral with a great lesson to be learned. I honestly cherished this story because it makes you think about the different stages of life, and what the years may bring to a person. When I read this story it reminded me of the pilgrims, They had to pay heavy taxes to the King. I recomend this book to anyone who likes to read about friendship.
P.S. It also reminded me of my mom" By Skyler Devey
