Shel Silverstein


Sheldon Allan Silverstein
was born in windy Chicago on September 25, 1930

This author has delighted millions of children and adults alike across the world.
My first memory of falling in love with a book stems from

"The Giving Tree"

Love it!

I explored this author further to discover "Where The Sidewalk Ends" and through the years have steadily collected his books. This man has a unique way of hooking the reader right into the story helps your imagination expand and makes you feel blessed to be alive!
