    Grew Up With Him

    i first read shel silverstein in the first grade, and i've loved him ever since. there's something so simple and pure, yet meaningful, about his work. reading it takes me back to the days of being a carefree kid. he's kind of like a favorite security blanket. love him. :)

    His poems make me happy.

    It's that simple, and yet so rare. I've loved them since I found Where The Sidewalk Ends in Books'a'Million at age eight. That book remains on my special shelf in the basement where I can read it any time I want.

    I first read Shel Silverstein's books back

    when I was only 11 years old & I still read them today. Back then, I had a teacher who got me in to his books. I liked his poetry books Where The Sidewalk Ends, A Light In The Attic, and Falling Up, the best. I also like The Giving Tree. My favourite book by Shel Silverstein...

    My Favorite, "The Yipiyuk"

    In the swamplands long ago, Where the weeds and mudglumps grow, A Yipiyuk bit upon my toe… Exactly why I do not know. I kicked and cried I hollered “Oh”— The Yipiyuk would not let go. I whispered to him soft and low— The Yipiyuk would not...

    The Man

    Shel is the man. He was a great artist and poet. I loved his songs that Dr. Hook and others did. They always had some humor in them. I also loved his children’s and adult books. Yes even though he is most famous for his children books I found out several years ago from a guy I...

    I grew up listening to the wonderful songs he wrote for Doctor Hook. I`m only 20, but I bought a copy of an album call ``Bankrupt``at a charity shop when I was only 8, just because the guys on the cover looked so freaky. I still play that album all the time, although I own it on...
