Why read it?
3 authors picked Where the Sidewalk Ends as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
This is an absolute staple to this day! The pages are frayed because of my many rereads and trying to master Shel's whimsical and effortless drawings. Countless tales of silly adolescent nonsense but all with that hidden knowledge of greater wisdom. His words echo the innocence and rawness of childhood on an endless journey of ignorance and adventure.
This book was my inspiration for reading and writing when I was young. Short comical stories with simple illustrations had me hooked. They grab you with the first line and keep you entertained. And stories are over before you know it and leave you wanting for more. Decades later, I can still recite my favorites.
A great storytime book that will be sure to get littles giggling.
