Green Books for Kids. The Giving Tree, by Shell Silverstein, is another environmental classic book about the long term relationship between a boy and a tree. The boy both loves and destroys the tree (anything ring any bells about our relationship with the world, here?). If you visit Shel Silverstein’s site, you’ll find whimsical animations of this and other books.
