I just bought “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein (hardback) at Buy.com and had the $10.00 cost subtracted instantly at checkout because I am a new Google Checkout customer. I paid a total of $3.60 for shipping. You can get the same deal too on this book (or any other $10 item)! After you click on “add to cart” to place this book in your shopping cart, you need to click on the “Google Checkout $10 off” button to proceed. You will then be shown the cost of this item $10.00, minus the $10.00 promotion, then you select the lowest shipping option.

I remember reading Shel Silverstein’s poetry as a kid, and I wanted to get this book to read with my boys. I do not remember reading this particular story before, but I was moved by the description: “THE GIVING TREE tells the tale of a young boy and the tree who, literally piece by piece, gives her life for him. Throughout the story, the tree (which is referred to by female pronouns) never hesitates to give the boy whatever he asks of her. ” This is definitely a story I can relate to as a mom. I know this deal is just a deal, not truly a freebie, but I wanted to share it with you. I do not know when this book will sell out, so don’t wait to get this deal!
