As always, the poems of Shel Silverstein are wonderful word play and the illustrations are a pure delight The first one is just simply beautiful Years from Now Although I cannot see your faceAs you flip through these poems awhile,Somewhere from some far off placeI hear you laughing and I smile
There really is a Dead Poets Society, and Shel Silverstein must be the president Imagine my delight and my goosebumps when I learned that he had put out another book of poetry and pictures just for me FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE I don t want to share too much, because the joy of reading Shel s poems is in the surprise you get when you hit the best lines You also really need the artwork to fully appreciate the poems Here s the first poem in the book YEARS FROM NOWAlthough I cannot see your faceAs you f [...]

Shel Silverstein es un escritor que adoro, m s all de si sus libros son para ni os siempre esconden cierta sabidur a para j venes y adultos pero definitivamente creo que sus poemas, en su mayor a, no son para mi, o al menos no cuando trata de ser gracioso Hay algunos poemas que destacan por ser tan lindos, siendo mi favorito de toda la vida Happy ending , pero la mayor a de ellos no son para mi, no logro captar el humor o simplemente no me divierten, por lo que no me dejan esa sensaci n maravill [...]
Ava is reading this delightfully by herself and with us at night As soon as I handed it to her, she sat down and read it for 20 minutes, laughing every few pages It is wonderful Shel Silverstein was a genius He is able to tap into the heart of the child in all of us in such a unique way Add this to your collection

What can I say Shel Silverstein does it again with his illustrations and poems, just straight up entertaining me It was a quick read, mainly because it s poetry and it s very enjoyable A dog eats the Tomato out of a BLT A WOW turns into MOM Hairy Harry Neverchop, a man who never cut his hair, demonstrates situational irony at a barbershop I don t know how else to put it It s just really good But I m pretty sure that Roald Dahl was his mentor, probably because of his incorporation of poetry and r [...]
It was good I read it a little bit ago.
Reviewed at teachmentortexts 2012 Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows that I agonized about how to rate this book I love Shel Silverstein and before this book I would have said and everything he writes however, I cannot say that any Every Thing On It was such a mish mash of poems I think that Shel may not have put him in his other anthologies because he knew that they did not work Some as fantastic, carefree and fun as I remember Shel, but others were not Some were thought provoking Some wer [...]
It was a good poetry book, and I am not a huge fan of poetry I wish that this book had a plot and a story through the book I did think that the stories where cute and funny and I thought the last one was sad it was called WHEN I AM GONE I think Shel Silverstein did a great job with the poems and drawings WHEN I AM GONEWhen I am gone what will you do Who will write and draw for you Someone smarter someone new Some one better maybe YOU
I ve been a fan of Shel Silverstein since my early days of reading I remember reading Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, and Falling Up When I received a copy of Everything On It for review I was instantly taken back to those days in elementary school where my view of poetry expanded beyond the world of rhyming poems I remember being fascinated by the worlds he created in a just few simple lines As an adult reading the poems in Every Thing On It, I was still fascinated I giggled just [...]
I can t believe there s going to be a new Shel Silverstein collection of never before published poems I loved his books so much as a kid, and was so sad when he died.UPDATE This is kind of impossible to rate, because I am obviously not the target demographic for these books any As a kid, I would have loved this just as much as the other three, but reading it now gave me a few mild chuckles and smiles Overall though, I was left with a nice peaceful feeling of being back with these ridiculous poem [...]
I loved Shel Silverstein as a kid, particularly Where the Sidewalk Ends I read it over and over This new, posthumous collection is every bit as whimsical, funny, gross, and touching as I hoped it would be It has a little bit of everything, and left me smiling, laughing, and even with some goosebumps Grown ups who loved Silverstein as kids will love this one too, and hopefully a new generation will become fans as well.
After reading many of Shel Silverstein s books including Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic, I stumbled upon one of his most recent books, which is called Every Thing on It and it is just as surreal and hilarious as his previous works Basically, this book contains poems written by Shel Silverstein and some of my favorites include All PackedMe and Joe, we re all packed up,Me and Joe, we ve got our tickets,Me and Joe, we re set to go Hey, wait a minute Where s Joe WhooshMy hair blowe [...]
My parents purchased The Sidewalk Ends for me in second grade I still have my copy, with my name lettered inside the front copy The book is basically falling apart, it has been read and reread so many times It is in my classroom library now so my students can see what it looks like when a book is loved I will be forever grateful for a new volume in my Silverstein collection, made all the special because it seemed impossible And this one is destined to be as special to a new generation as The Si [...]
Shel Silverstein was my hero when I was nine, so I ve added this new collection to that list based on just the few sample poems included in my review copy The perfect line illustrations and provocative poems are just as wonderful as the classic collections.Give a reluctant reader a Silverstein collection, sit back, and let them devour the delectable creations from the brain of a literary genius I know Shel Silverstein is on the Banned and Challenged lists is many states, but I have to say I find [...]
Classic Silverstein and I loved it Most of it made me laugh and some of it is gross which is why he is so popular.One of my favorites DON T CHANGE ON MY ACCOUNT If you re sloppy, that s just fine.If you re moody, I won t mind.If you re fat, that s fine with me.If you re skinny, let it be.If you re bossy, that s alright.If you re nasty, I won t fight.If you re rough, well that s just you.If you re mean, that s alright too.Whatever you are is all okay.I don t like you anyway.
The only poet I ever, truly enjoyed Just finished A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugardtime for some light reading.
Shel Silverstein really did take the art of writing poetry for kids to new heights, didn t he I ve never read anything else like this book Packed with nearly two hundred poems of varying length, style and attitude, Every Thing On It is a masterful piece of pithy thought and comedic pathos, crafted beautifully and without any agenda other than providing the best possible literature for young readers Most of the poems can be read in straightforward appreciation for the humor that they contain, but [...]
Shel Silverstein is one of the best poetry authors I ve seen read His books are so funny and creative.if you love poetry and you are in 4th and older you ll love this book too If you d enjoyed other poetry books you ll love this one too Shel Silverstein writes many poetry books that have funny,weird and creative poems.
Clever and funny and an overall delightful read All I could think of while reading this was, Shel Silverstein, where have you been all my life Now I m planning to read his other poetry books.
I remember how silly Silverstein s poems are, but I had forgotten how sweet some of them can be.
This collection contains the poem Masks, which is about two people who conceal a key aspect of their identity from the world around them because they re afraid of not being accepted.This could lead into a Don t Judge a Book by its Cover assignment where the student talks about something that a lot of people might not know about them from their superficially visible aspects.
We all have favorite authors that are exciting to share Shel Silverstein is one of those authors for me, and I hope he is for you, too Many times did I try to stay home from school by quoting Sick I tormented my sibling with Sister For Sale One of the cutest things I have ever seen is a group of preschoolers acting out being eaten by boa constrictors Last September an amazing thing happened a new Shel Silverstein book came out Every Thing On It finds an honored place next to Where The Sidewalk E [...]
This is the fourth collection of poetry and cartoon art, following the wildly popular Where the Sidewalk Ends , A Light in the Attic , and Falling Up Fans of the late songwriter won t be disappointed by the genius rhymes and zany illustrations that dominated the earlier works It s probably no secret that a rhyming dictionary was buried alongside Shel Silverstein Much like the others, this book comprises over 150 poems, mostly nonsense, but there are intriguing patterns and verses A personal favo [...]
