Happy Earth Day! The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein, was banned for portraying “a vicious one-sided relationship” between the main character and the main tree.

    Now I may be going out on a limb here, but I agree with the reason of the banning (note: not that the book was banned) for the outcome of the story is rather tragic. Either way, The Giving Tree is a very sentimental store, and a good one to read in celebration of Earth Day!
