Kids and adults are enthralled with Shel Silverstein poems, the Silverstein poems can make you giggle or make you laugh so hard your stomach hurts. When I was younger I was introduced to Shel Silverstein poetry by a teacher and became obsessed with it, I even presented some of the poems by Shel Silverstein at a type of Young Authors festival.
