I used to babysit for a family with two boys in junior high. They spent many happy hours laughing hysterically while I read Garfield comics and Hank the Cowdog out loud. I suspect they would have had a similar reaction to Shel Silverstein.

As for me, since I never read Shel Silverstein growing up, I don’t look back on it with any sort of nostalgia, so I understand why everyone loves him, but I don’t really get it. (I really loved Boy Named Sue growing up though.)
