    I love Shel Silverstein! He is one of my favorite poets. I hope that everyone gets the chance to read his works.

    I, too, love books that almost sing when they're read aloud.

    When I was little, I learned about poetry from Where the Sidewalk Ends, and I fully expected all poets to be as cool as Shel. I have to say, much of my required reading in school couldn't hold a candle, and I still appreciate all the quirks of Shel's work. No Robert Burns, ofcourse, but a master nonetheless.

    These are great books! I have always loved them.
    I seem to recall one about "Nobody Loves Me" and also one about a sister...

    This children's book sounds absolutely precious. Wonderful review, thanks.

    I can remember reading these books when I was little. I loved them and had, at one point, a lot of the poems memorized for a "show and tell" sort of thing at my elementary school. This article is very nostalgic, thanks for the review and the reminder!

    I love this book, as well as other works by Shel Silverstein... such as "Where the Sidewalk Ends" and "The Giving Tree"

    My Mom had all of Shel Silverstein's books and she read some of the poems to me. I proceeded to read the rest on my own and I just love all the crazy characters and stories in the poems. His poems are just so much fun!

    aslindy: yep, Nobody Loves Me is a great one. I still remember most of it and I learned it way back in grade school.

    Dagda: Tea? I'm shocked! What happened to the coffee? :)

    Christina: I love The Giving Tree as well. Amazing story. Wasn't there a book called The Missing Piece, too? I seem to remember liking that one as well...
