A Newfound Love

For someone who's favorite animal is a giraffe, and someone who is going to school to become a teacher, I sure have been behind the times (or at least not looking enough for classroom resources). I have never read or even seen this book before! It's amazing-and really has captured the work of Shel Silverstein. He is on heck-uv-a guy to give teachers, parents, and children an opportunity to explore the world of words in a twistful (yes, it can be a word), poetic way!

"If you had a giraffe and he stretched another would have a giraffe and a half.

And if you glued a rose to the tip of his nose...

And...if he put on a shoe and then stepped in some glue...

And if he used a chair to comb his hair...."

***If I told you the rest, you wouldn't go read it for yourself!
