    An absolute MUST for all Shel Silverstein fans

    Readers of all ages will delight in this new collection from Shel Silverstein. It's so rare to have the opportunity to enjoy new work from a beloved artist who has passed away, so thanks to the Silverstein Estate for giving this collection to Shel's fans so we might have that pleasure of discovering something new from the brilliant and inventive Shel Silverstein once more.

    Good intro to poetry

    Our three-year old loves the rhyming Much of the subject matter is over her head, but it presents a good gateway to discuss meanings of things. Have read each poem at least three times within the last three weeks.

    From the delightful and crazy genius of Shel Silverstein comes this wacky collection of poems and drawings. I doubt there has ever been or ever will be another poet that can move audiences the way that he can.

    Call me crazy, but I was not expecting this book to be so funny. Weird, yes. But funny? You should know that I laughed the whole way through. So did my kids.

    Silverstein's writing is impeccable. His lines flow off the tongue with ease and captivate children and grown ups alike. Often, rhyming books and poetry lack an ease of reading out loud. But the poems in Everything On It rhyme perfectly and flow smoothly, making them easy and fun to read.

    Just like his writing, Silverstein's black and white drawings are entertaining and engaging. Often, the picture works with the writing to tell the entire story. His style is easily loved by children. I think that this is because his artwork looks a lot like something a child would draw. They relate to art that looks like it belongs in their world.

    Silverstein is a kid that never really grew up. His poems encompass a wide range of crazy subjects including oddly shaped heads, cheating in school, strange salesmen, and obscure shops. The one subject I noticed pop up more than any other was cannibalism. If that is a subject that bothers you, then you probably shouldn't read it. There are monsters, man eating plants, child eating horses, and people eating giants to be found in the pages of this book. If you enjoy the wacky and the weird and are ready to find a book full of laughs, then this is the one for you.
