A classic book for all agesófor mothers and fathers! A moving parable about the gift of giving and the capacity to love, told throughout the life of a boy who grows to manhood and a tree that selflessly gives him her bounty through the years.

This book taught me to appreciate my mother, whom I love with all my heart. She gives me everything in her power, and tries her hardest to get me whatever I want that is out of her reach. She does not ask for anything in return, only my happiness, which I have whenever I'm with her. Merci beaucoup, Maman.
