Make it a Shel Sunday

When I saw this picture earlier this week, it made me chuckle. Reading poetry from Shel Silverstein’s book, Where the Sidewalk Ends, always brought a smile to the face of my students as well as my daughters.

It’s been years since I’ve read any Shel Silverstein poetry, but seeing this image inspired me to re-read many of his poems.

mustntsI couldn’t help but smile as I read his humorous words.


As the writer of Johnny Cash’s famous song, A Boy Named Sue,  Shel Silverstein’s unique sense of humor has been a source of joy for more than a half century.


So make it a Shel Sunday and smile.
