Shel Silverstein poems have a special place in my heart. We used “Where the Sidewalk Ends” and “A Light in the Attic” to introduce our children to the world of poetry during our first year of homeschool. They quickly grew to love our poetry time together. Even our youngest, who wasn’t “in school” yet, would scamper out of her room to join us when she heard them being read, and she would cry alligator tears if she thought that she had missed “silly poems” for the day.
Naturally, I was over the moon when I found out that Shel Silverstein had a youtube channel where, not only are the poems animated, they are narrated by Mr. Silverstein himself! If your family loves these books the way that we do, head on over there now to check it out!
