Book Review4 of 5 stars to Where the Sidewalk Ends, a collection of poetry published in 1974 by Shel Silverstein What a wonderful book to read with children at any age that is, both any age for the reader and the children I first read this book when I was about 10 years old, and then again in college From the brilliant characters to the alliteration and rhyme, to the memorable lines and funny situations, it s one of those books where you will find something new each time you read it.I cannot imagine being this creative I can dream up stories about real people and situations and have written several, but to have an imagination where animals and things can talk, have emotions, interact in peculiar ways to find the words to compare and contrast to describe and draw precious creations is true talent I admire Silverstein s massive fantasy world of freedom He was so unconstrained in his ability to develop a world with just enough charm and beauty to win us all over It s a book all about perception, but without taking the didactic and pedantic approach.Children see things differently than adults Adults have limits Children have experiences But what happens on the other side where something is too far to see, or too close to imagine Who lives in the crack between cement blocks The world of freedom does and that s where Silverstein wants us to go, where we are all equal, without preconceived notions to be able to explore as if we are seeing something for the first time and connecting with everyone around us That s how to motivate readers with this book children learning to seethan what they actually see.I could go on and on but I ll stop It s just a wonderful way to learn FYI Wrote this review 2017 from memory as I want to have a review for everything I remember reading If I messed it up, let me know LOLAbout MeFor those new to me or my reviews here s the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you ll also find TV Film reviews, the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I ve visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who what when where and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by Note All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them Many thanks to their original creators.
