Yesterday, Harper Collins finally released a Kindle edition of Shel Silverstein’s classic book, The Giving Tree. This simple parable with surprising depth and meaning has been a bestselling favorite for each new generation to discover it, but up until yesterday none of Silverstein’s books have been released in Kindle format. Hopefully this release signals we will soon be seeing more of Silverstein’s work in Kindle format. From Amazon:
This year, as The Giving Tree turns fifty, this timeless classic is available for the first time ever in ebook format. This digital edition will allow young readers and lifelong fans to continue the legacy and love of a household classic that will now reach an even wider audience. Never before have Shel Silverstein’s children’s books appeared in a format other than hardcover.
Since it was first published fifty years ago, Shel Silverstein’s poignant picture book for readers of all ages has offered a touching interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another’s capacity to love in return.
