Poetry for the Young at Heart
July 07, 2012
Shel Silverstein was one of my favorite American poets. His most popular collection of poetry is found in the book, Where the Sidewalk Ends. At times, these poems can be quite funny and delightfully silly. Some of his poetry is touching and conveys messages about life and life experiences we take for granted. There are quirky drawings throughout, that make the poems even more enjoyable.
If you liked this book, be sure and check out A Light in the Attic. This is another amusing book of whimsical poetry and fanciful words.
