The Giving Tree

Artist: Jared Hicks

Banned/Challenged Book: The Giving Tree

Reason for Banning: The book was banned due to deforestation and sexism.

Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: I chose The Giving Tree because I went to the preschool called The Giving Tree. We read this book a lot and it was one of my favorite books as a kid. I wanted to find out why this book was banned. I don’t think this book should be banned it is a great children’s book in my opinion.
