I love the poem about the dollar bill, where the boy changes it to quarteres, nickles, pennies. It's really funny. I bought that book when I was three, and now I'm ten and I still have the book. It's a treasure to me, and will always be. I bring it on holiday too!

When I am feeling sad or lonely I take out one of his books and read them. They always make me feel so much better. Sometimes my mom hears me laughing from outside my room and she thinks I am crying. I love your books! -Jessie, age 11

Shel Silverstein is the most creative poet and captures everyone's attention with his poems. My teachers all read his poems at the beginning of class and we are in Junior High.
