The Giving Tree Is Made of Happy

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Originally, this post was going to be on Shel Silverstein‘s book, The Giving Tree. I may still post something on that later, but I found this amazing gem on YouTube.

According to the description with the video:

there’s a new book forest on the streets of berlin. it’s a place where people can leave and find old books.

It’s such a beautiful idea. That it hasn’t been vandalized makes me think that I need to have more faith in the goodness of people. And that’s something this blog is about, so I’m glad I saw this.

Berliners are made of happy! And literacy & community, apparently. 😀
