Where The Sidewalk Ends: The Poems and Drawings of Shel Silverstein
For one of my 2013 Reading Challenges, Reading Outside the Box, I chose this category:
It’s my Birthday! So, have a party! Read a book that was published in either your birth month or birth year!
And for my birth year, 1974, one of my favorite authors Shel Silverstein published one of his most popular books, Where the Sidewalk Ends. So, I read it. It was a fun, silly book of poems. The poems are silly and catchy. Some of my favorites are: Sick, a poem about a little girl who swears she is sick with all sorts of ailments as she is trying to get out of going to school but in the end, it is Saturday! And she recovers very quickly indeed–silly girl; Hug O’ War,
Because, I absolutely love hugs!; and, Spaghetti,
Because it is silly and messy fun; and Lazy Jane,
This book is definitely fun and I can see why it is so very popular! I would definitely recommend Where The Sidewalk Ends: The Poems and Drawings of Shel Silverstein.
