Finally! Another Shel Silverstein book has arrived! Its been twelve years since Silverstein's passing and only one other book has been published. Every Thing On It includes the same illustrations (black and white) like his other illustrated collections and has over one hundred poems that you'll absolutely love! This children-friendly book is a must for any Shel Silverstein fan and will definitely be a success.

A Little Background

If you're unfamiliar with Shel Silverstein I would recommend going to your local library and checking out some of his work. Silverstein started his career by drawing cartoons. His editors convinced him to start writing children's poetry and with no guidance whatsoever invented his own style. Some of his childrens books include:

and many more!

We all are looking for material to read to our children that will pass on encouragement. Every Thing On It is a great collection that will provide your children with the same feelings we all received when our parents read his poems to us. Every Thing On It gives you the chance to spread the magic of Shel Silverstein with a whole new generation.

Every Thing On It was put together by family and archivists-- so I'm sure there is more to come!

I'm a big fan of Silverstein and am so glad more of his work is being published. Hope more collections follow.
