A Árvore Generosa
This book is the best known of the American writer and illustrator Shel Silverstein. The classic, written in 1964, moved generations with the story of a tree and a boy.
In a few words, Silverstein talks about the relationship between man and nature, where a tree offers everything to a boy, who leaves it aside as he grows up, at the same time he becomes a selfish man. But to please the boy he loves, this tree's bounty never ends - even if it means its own destruction.
Two strong qualities come together in this book. The fact that it addresses fundamental issues such as time, death, life, love and friendship, everything that positions us in relation to others and ourselves, as well as the bet at the aesthetic level, in narrative and illustrative sobriety, with Silverstein's simple and precise stroke.
