Silverstein Fan:

WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS by Shel Silverstein is a collection of quirky children's poetry written/illustrated by Shel Silverstein. I am a huge fan of multi-talented Shel Silverstein. He was amazingly gifted. If you haven't read his work, read it.

I love this book. I read it to my now 35 year old daughter when she was little and now my very young grandchildren. It's certainly not your typical poetry book and it is excellent!

Jennifer Starkman, July 7, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
Okay, I admit it: I?m biased. Where The Sidewalk Ends, by Shel Silverstein, is my absolute, all-time favourite book of poetry, even as an adult. And really, it?s no wonder. After all, even after a lifetime of readings, this book?both its poems and riotous line drawings?is guaranteed to have you wiping tears of laughter from your eyes. Silverstein?s poems run the gamut from utter inanity of the most hilarious sort, to a spot-on insight into the impish workings of a mischievous child?s mind. And yet somehow, he also provides comfort to kids through his familiarity and obvious empathy with the unique quirks of childhood (his Thumbs and Afraid of the Dark were always particular favourites of mine when I was very small). Where The Sidewalk Ends is a crucial addition to every family?s library.

I can still remember in elementary school when our teacher was reading "Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout would not take the garbage out..." and how we all laughed and laughed as the mess grew and grew!
What a wonderful book, full of funny and inventive poetry. What a loss it would be if this book was not shared with our children.
Mine have the book and we read it to this day. My kids love the same poems that I love. We love to read them and laugh together.

Come in... for where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein's world begins. You'll meet a boy who turns into a TV set and a girl who eats a whale. The Unicorn and the Bloath live there, and so does Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who will not take the garbage out. It is a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, a place where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist.

Shel Silverstein's masterful collection of poems and drawings is at once outrageously funny and profound.

"Synopsis" by , Where the Sidewalk Ends turns forty! Celebrate with this anniversary edition that features an eye-catching commemorative red sticker. This classic poetry collection, which is both outrageously funny and profound, has been the most beloved of Shel Silverstein's poetry books for generations.

Where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein's world begins. There you'll meet a boy who turns into a TV set and a girl who eats a whale. The Unicorn and the Bloath live there, and so does Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who will not take the garbage out. It is a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, a place where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist.

Shel Silverstein's masterful collection of poems and drawings is one of Parent & Child magazine's 100 Greatest Books for Kids. School Library Journal said, "Silverstein has an excellent sense of rhythm and rhyme and a good ear for alliteration and assonance that make these poems a pleasure to read aloud."

Shel Silverstein's incomparable career as a children's book author and illustrator began with Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. In 1964, Shel's creativity continued to flourish as four more books were published in the same year—Don't Bump the Glump!, A Giraffe and a Half, Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?, and the beloved classic The Giving Tree. Later he continued to build his remarkable body of work with Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Falling Up, Every Thing On It, The Missing Piece, The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, and Runny Babbit.

Supports the Common Core State Standards.
