The Giving Tree

Thank you Jason Mariposa for sharing this story with me! It’s really really nice and I was touched by the tree (I sound like some weird hippie). 😀 I think I missed half my childhood not knowing this. 

It’s a 1964 storybook but we could only find videos and readings (in various versions). I may find myself in Fully Booked or National Bookstore later this week.

 

Dramatic version:

 

Gago version:

This was the first one Jason showed me… and there was cussing. 😐 A kid’s story with F words… Plus the tree sounded like a drag queen.

* I got inspired to revisit my childhood and read Hans Christian Andersen again. 🙂

P.S.

Thanks to Riza and her thesis, we may finally solve water pollution!
