Ronni Bennett who writes the Time Goes By Blog had a great post this morning about poems of our childhood. It got me thinking about poems my girls enjoyed when they were little. One of our favorite poets is Shel Silverstein. He wrote some wonderful poetry like "Sister for Sale" and "I'm Sick and I Cannot go to School Today". I went to his website and found the most wonderful animation and reading of "Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me too". Just click on his book "Where the Sidewalk Ends" to experience it. If I had to pick 10 books to be snowed in with for the winter I think "Where the Sidewalk Ends" would have to be on the list.
