it was amazing
bookshelves: poetry, 2010
Read in July, 2010

Unlike many children, including my wife, I didn't grow up reading Shel Silverstein. This is both sad and joyous. Sad because I didn't read him sooner, but joyous because I get to discover him fully now as an adult. Nothing short of brilliant. I especially love his more subversive pieces that take aim at complacency and thoughtlessness and other symptoms of ignorance that are too present in our culture.

Shannon I love this book, and it is sad that you never read it as a kid. Since it was in my 2cnd grade class, and I was alowed to read it evry day, I pety you. But I think it's good that you're now reading it, and I envy you because I can't read at my new school. GOD BLESS YA!
