Shel Silverstein is my favorite children’s author. I have admired his work since I was a young child, and I am a collector of his books. As an adult, I have often read his poems to my children. In school I had to memorize and recite one of his poems to the class so I chose Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout. It is a wonderful and funny poem about the horrible effects of not taking the garbage out:-) One of my favorite books by Shel Silverstein is Lafacadio: The Lion Who Shot Back, which is extremely funny. The humor is geared more toward adults, but it is a children’s illustrated book. It would have been great to meet him. It was once a dream of mine to write children’s books. But maybe one day…
