The Selfish Giant

You can read The Selfish Giant, by Oscar Wilde, here, here, here and here. You can listen to the story online as narrated by Frederick March here. In the early 1970's there was an animated version.

It is such a beautiful story of love, a picture of St. Francis of Assisi's prayer:

for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
