review 1: Everything On It is a book of Shel Silverstein’s poems and drawings. Each poem is unique however there are connections that maybe made between them. There are poems that list items related to each other. Some are though provoking, such as “When I Am Gone” p. 194, saying that he will not always be here, so who will write when he is gone. Ironically this book was published after his death. There are also poems that pertain to everyday life a child endures and experiences that may be scary for some. These include going to the dentist or getting a shot from the doctor. I want to have my future students find the poems that pertain to life experiences (doctor and dentist visits) and how the poem either teaches a lesson or may help a young child be less scared at the doctor... more. Each poem brought a different emotion or brought a memory of a past experience. I would have older students fourth maybe third grade or older. This is because some of the poems could be difficult to understand. However if using it for young students I would choose a select amount to have them draw pictures or similar ideas about the poem.
review 2: Then a new collection of Shel Silverstein’s poetry, Every Thing On It, was published in 2011, comprised of 140 never-before-seen poems and drawings that Shel had completed before his death. Say Hi-ho for the toilet troll, get tongue-tied with Stick-a-Tongue-Out Sid, play a highly unusual horn, and experience the joys of growing down! This book is filled with Shel Silverstein’s blend of humor and poignancy that bends the brain and opens the heart. less
