It was great. I think that Shel is a really good poet. We are learning
about him in school. And we are learning about poetry, too!

poems like this aren't exactly about what you think they are about as i
read this i think that Shel was a great poet for the smaller children but
he didn't do such a good job with the adult part of his work. writing
cartoons is ok i guess but in Playboy? i don't really know about this guy.
Even though io do like his children books. I will never look at a puzzle
piece the same again. Of course, that is what poets are supposed to do;
change the way we look at every day things

This poem is really creative. I have to do a poetry project, in which I
must include a poem by my poet. This poem is perfect for my project!

This poem just appeared on a state standardized test for my 5th graders.
I'm not sure how much they understood it, but they loved it just the same.
Shel really is an icon if they chose him to appear on a test! :)

I grew up on Shel's poetry, but somehow I've only come to fully appreciate
his work as an adult. This poem and many others let me escape back to a
time when life was simple and you memorized a poem because it was silly and
it made you laugh. I love this poem!!

Reading this poem shines a light on literature. There are many ways of
interpreting a piece of literature and Silverstein illuminates this idea
through his poem. A great loss when he died, hope his work continues to
brighten our children and our future!
