One of my favorite books is “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein. In the story, the apple tree gives to the main character throughout his lifetime. My godmother gave me a copy of the book and I read it to my children when they were young.
The story continues to touch our family. My son, Kyle E. Williams, won a handmade guitar from the Giving Tree band and composed his first songs using this guitar. Take a listen to his song “CTA” and let me know what you think of this story.
