Or, wait...no, maybe it's The Light In The Attic.
No, no....maybe it's actually The Giving Tree....
Maybe? Maybe it was Falling Up?
I can never decide. One thing I do know and that's Where The Sidewalk Ends is Silverstein at his most awesome!
The poems are funny and sincere at the same time. I really enjoyed each and every poem. The drawings are also really good. Just to give you a little taste of my Silverstein's work, here's the very first poem I heard from this book when I was little called, "Hat." And it goes a little something like this:
Teddy said it was a hat,
So I put it on.
Now Dad is saying, "Where the heck's
the toilet plunger gone?"
That's only a SMALL taste of the wonders you will find in this book. My other favorites are "Hat," "Dancing Pants," "I Must Remember," "Warning," "Who," and "The Land of Happy." I'm sure there are many more, but that's all I can think of right now. Bottom line: EVERY poem is great.
Although this is really great for kids, I think this is something EVERYONE would enjoy. Young or old, "Where the Sidewalk Ends" by Shel Silverstein is a fine read. One of my favorites.
(If you liked this one, check out "A Light in the Attic." Very good book as well.)
I and my family thoroughly love this book (and many other Shel Silverstein works) and when we misplaced our copy I went in search of a new one and at the same time I wanted to purchase the CD.
I saw that this "anniversary edition" came with the CD and was excited that instead of buying the book and CD separately, I would pay a bit of a premium and kill two birds with one stone (and heck, there might even be an extra goodie included with the "anniversary edition).
Nice plan eh?
I sure wish the description had indicated that the "CD" was only a demo containing ten "highlights" from the actual CD (though Sony was nice enough to print on the demo CD that the "full" standard CD can be purchased from them. :(
Knowing that it was a Sony CD from circa 2002, I now must scan my computer to see if their infamous rootkit has been installed on my computer.
If that part had been advertised when I was ordering this I would have bought different "edition" and put the extra $$$ towards buying the REAL CD that should go with this book.
