About the Author
Shel Silverstein's very first children's book Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back was published in 1963, and followed the next year by two other books. The first of those, The Giving Tree, is a moving story about the love of a tree for a boy; it took four years before Harper Children's books decided to publish it. Shel returned to humour that same year with A Giraffe and a Half. His first collection of poems and drawings, Where the Sidewalk Ends, appeared in 1974, and his second, A Light in the Attic, in 1981. When he was a G.I. in Japan and Korea in the 1950, he learned to play the guitar and to write songs, including 'A Boy Named Sue' for Johnny Cash. In 1984, Silverstein won a Grammy Award for Best Children's Album for Where the Sidewalk Ends - 'recited, sung and shouted' by the author. He was also an accomplished playwright, including the 1981 hit, 'The Lady or the Tiger Show.' The last book to be published before he died in 1999, was Falling Up (1996).

Flash forward several years later, while student teaching in a fourth grade classroom and teaching a unit on poetry, I introduced my class of 12 nine and ten year olds to this book. Most of them loved it! During independent reading time, the two Shel Silverstein books in the classroom were the first taken by students for the next couple of weeks.
Now, another few years later, I've purchased this for my soon-to-be-eight year old niece. I am so excited to gift this to her, and just know it is going to spark a love of poetry in her as well.
My (almost) 5 year old loves this book. We read 4 or 5 poems together every day before bed. My 2 year old could care less about the silly poems and Shel's wit, however.
I love it!
