Happy Birthday Shel Silverstein!

Today would have been the 81st birthday of Shel Silverstein.

The world of children's literature lost a fantastic author, poet, illustrator, and songwriter when he passed away in 1999.  Look through your bookshelves and enjoy a Shel Silverstein story today. I find that his books are most enjoyable when shared with someone else.

Here are a few that are on my shelf at home:

The Giving Tree
Where the Sidewalk Ends
A Light in the Attic
The Missing Piece
The Missing Piece Meets the Big O
A Giraffe and A Half
Runny Babbit
Falling Up

Also, a new book has been released, Everything On It.  I can't wait to add it to my collection!

Happy Reading!
