List item

This book by Shel Silverstein is a classic for a reason. It tells the story of an apple tree and a boy who form a bond, detailing the progression of the friendship over the years. Specifically, the boy starts off by playing with the tree, but as the boy grows into a man he takes more and more from the tree each time he visits it. The tree is happy to give of itself to make the boy happy, but eventually, almost everything is taken away from her. However, the boy still comes to visit the tree as an old man, and the tree still gains happiness from giving what it can to the boy.
