I was happy when he trusted her because that’s to one big step in a good relationship. At the end of the book I think Bobby was just happy for not being invisible again. Also he was probably happy for his parents because they could see their son again. Bobby was excited to be normal again because he didn’t like to hide and he was tired of it. He was happy that he got to go out in public normal and not all crazy looking.
The Giving Tree The giving tree is a book you may or may have not read in your childhood, it taught me many lessons, three are the most important though. The first is obviously, giving!

Is Transcendentalism a good or bad thing? Everyday in life people come across traits of transcendentalism and don 't even realize it, it can be as easy as looking at the trees or doing something else than what everyone else is doing. These are all examples of transcendentalism and people don 't even realize it. For example my family and I went to San Francisco and went to the Redwoods where respect for nature was so strong because I was amazed at how cool the trees were and how long they have been there. In Dead Poets’ Society there is a group of young men in Mr. Keating’s class who show the traits of transcendentalism under the guide of Mr. Keating.
Being taken advantage of and naivety come together hand in hand. Therefore, in Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, the Tree is naive and being taken advantage of because she puts the Boy’s happiness and well-being ENTIRELY above her own, ultimately leading to her self destruction. The Boy also habitually returns to reap the benefits of the Tree because he is knows the Tree will not reject him, and that the Tree even feels sorry on his behalf because of his misfortune. Although some argue that the Tree and the Boy have a mother-son relationship, implying that she is willfully sacrificing for the Boy, it does not disprove that the Boy takes advantage of her, and that she lets him do it. Self care is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as “the practice of taking an active role in protecting one 's own well-being and happiness” and as “the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one 's own health.” The title character neglects this practice which every person– or in this case, every personified being, owes to their survival.

While the people doing the helping know that they’re being nice, they don’t know that people like this writer are out there who see them and appreciate them for what they are. Once again, the helper is naive to the person watching them and has no idea that they really are appreciated. From these two passages we can learn that helping people is a good thing and has its benefits, even if the person that you’re helping doesn’t know you’re there. The man who shovelled his sidewalk for the students was unseen by them as they flocked to school, but he didn’t mind as he was content with watching their success from his window. The woman who wrote the second passage talked about her appreciation for people like the man in the first
