Holiday Pause for Poetry: Readings by Shel Silverstein

shel silverstein LA books ExaminerShel Silverstein, poet, songwriter, musician, composer, cartoonist,
screenwriter, and author of children’s books, was a true Renaissance man. Known as Uncle Shelby to fans of his amazing children’s poetry books, Silverstein’s playful, quirky, and creative rhymes not only made poetry fun for children to read, but turned his beloved poetry collections A Light in the Attic, Falling Up, and The Giving Tree into true classics of American Literature. 

With this in mind, let’s all hit the pause buttons on our lives for a few minutes and watch Shel Silverstein sing “Sara Cynthia Sylvia Stout” and “Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me Too”.
What a great gift idea for children this holiday season! Learn more about Shel Silverstein at
