Who doesn’t love Shel Silverstein poems?
Kids love to read and recite them as much today as they did decades ago. And I think Shel would’ve been pretty blown away with with website created in his honor at shelsilverstein.com.
There are so many great free teaching resources on this site which are especially helpful for National Poetry Month in April, but really they’re fun to use any time of year.

What a treat to hear Shel Silverstein narrate his poem, “Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me Too, ” from Where the Sidewalk Ends. (2:14 min.)
