I always get choked up when I read this one. Very moving and good for kids and adults of all ages.

This is really a story about love. The kind of love that will make you sacrifice anything just to know the one you love is happy. Reading it as an adult, the boy comes off being a lot more selfish than I remember him being when I was a child. But, in the end, the tree gets the only thing she really wanted all along. It's a touching story, and one I think everyone should read.

I loved this book as a child because my favorite teacher read it to us. But when I read it as an adult, I thought the boy was selfish and the tree was a doormat. I don't see this book as being about a healthy relationship or healthy love.

I recently found this book after it had been missing for years. I wanted to read it again, but I knew that I shouldn't, because it reduces me to tears every time. I don't care if you're five years old or fifty: this story is worth reading for anybody.
