If you don't read out this book to your child, you will live with the sin of not telling one of the most wonderful tales to your child. So, don't be on the wrong side of life.
The story is about the kindness of a tree that keeps enriching a life--that of a boy--till it gives away everything it had.
The theme of the story is that of human greed and endless desire; and also of nature's abundant generosity.
