The Giving Tree

Artist: Shampagne Whetsone

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 thought it was cool. I liked the art from the book. In my drawing I drew the giving tree with flowers around it and clouds in the sky.
