And I couldn't be more geeked!
He's beginning to understand the irony too, like in his poem, SNOWBALL:
I made myself a snow ball as perfect as could be.
I thought I'd keep it as a pet and let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas and a pillow for it's head.
Then, last night it ran away.
But first -- it wet the bed.
It's one of his favorites, and reminds us of the little snowman that sits on our windowsill:
"Mooom, that's too silly. You can't sell snowballs!"
That's so great: he's all about poems. Love that book, btw.
That book is so awesome! My friend recently bought it and we spent hours reading all the poems in there. I remembered so many from when I was a kid!
I love that book and for the life of me have no idea why it isn't sitting on my bookshelf with all the others I adore.
Amazon.com here I come.
I also love that poem and your child is too funny.
Love Shel Silverstein so much! How fun to introduce those poems to your son!
We just had more snow last night.
Just as the last dump was beging to melt. :P
Sometimes tells me I wouldn't do too hot right now in the snowball selling business. Oh, well! Next idea . . . .
How cute!! I love how they get smarter every day. My nephew surprises me every time :)
I love Shel Silverstein. And who says you can't sell snowballs?
Have a great day, lady!
Shel - brings back very happy memories of when mine were younger:)
My daughter loved Shel Silverstein when she was younger, still does. His books are a priceless collection to any library, at any age. (Hugs)Indigo
I just couldn't love Shel Silverstein more! He is brilliantly funny.
I heart Shel Silverstein. I must have read that book hundreds of times in my youth, and I, too, was excited when my kids wanted to read the poems and giggle with me! He's the reason I love poetry.
Ah...I love that book. What a perfect poem for these days!!
Sounds like a great book! I used to make snow hearts when I was little.
I LURVE Shell Silverstein! I swear, I still know all the words to Sarah Cynthia Silvia Stout, who would not take the garbage out...
