something old into something new

Created: 04/08/06
As a child, going to the library at school was a competition. We would race down the hallway despite the screams of our teachers, to be the first one in the door. Then, we would run to the Shel Silverstein books. WHo would be the first to get it, who had not returned it from our last visit...and so on. As a child, his poetry was so funny and easy to remember. Now as an adult, I was walking with my friend and noticed that in her neighborhood, the sidewalks often ended. Recently I moved away from her and bought this fun book for her to remember our good times. Running through it, I was delighted to read those old poems again. They have changed as I have, and their meanings hold virtues and loyalty. I love this author and highly recommend any readings of his, for the young and old.

You can't go wrong with Shel Silverstein. He makes my husband and I laugh as much as my 7 year old. Sometimes I put one of his poems in her lunchbox, knowing it will make her smile. A classic!

Where the Sidewalk Ends

Created: 11/01/07
I bought Where the Sidewalk ends, a book by Shel Shilverstein. I remember reading it as a child. It is filled with funny poems and great drawings. Such a good book to pass the children in your lives or even for yourself if you just want a good laugh.

One of the best childrens books ever!

Created: 04/11/06
Growing up, my favourite days in elementary school were Shel Silverstein days. I remember vividly my varous teachers reading the poem, then showing us the pictures. This was an important part of my school life from about 2nd to 4th grade (of course we were to "mature" as 5th graders for that. Now things from my childhood make me happy again, so I have been purchasing Where The Sidewalk Ends books and CD's as christmas gifts for my siblings families, so my nieces and nephews can enjoy them. The CD is very good, and are expertly read, with music added on some, by Shel Silverstein himself. There are only about 40 poems on the CD, and I wish there were more, maybe even all, but as is, it is a very good companion to the book.
