    Classic Children’s Books That Have Been Banned In America -- The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein When: 1988 Why: Everyone’s favorite childhood book was banned from a public library in Colorado because it was considered “sexist.” It was also challenged by several schools because it “criminalized the foresting agency.”

    Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree" is a perennial classic that I remember from my childhood. It is one of my son's favorite books right now (he reads the Spanish version). #classic #kids #books

Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein

If you are a dreamer, come in, If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer..... If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in! -Invitation by Shel Silverstein

Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein - From the outrageously funny to the quietly affecting -- and touching on everything in between -- here are poems and drawings that illuminate the remarkable world of the well-known folksinger, humorist and creator of The Giving Tree.

I read this book so many times when I was little. I loved Shel Silverstein and remember writing him letters when I was in 2nd grade to see if he'd put my poems in his books. lol.

Falling Up. The best children's poems ever! Brings me back to when I was a kid!

Where the Sidewalk Ends

This book was recommended by one of my students. It's not my typical read, but I did find it difficult to put down. Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel which presents a future American society where books are outlawed and firemen burn any house that contains them. By Elizabeth Perez. ' <<< Oh I saw dis at my library! Imma get it along w/ Divergent!

The Giving Tree- My favorite book!! Maybe this is why I'm so darn giving, I read as a kid and truly loved this story :-)
