I am thrilled to have these two CDs in my hands. I found them on amazon but they came used from the goodwill. Both are in great condition. Great is that space between good and excellent.
As a kid I had both Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic in book form. I read the poems over and over to myself, friends, and family. These books helped me understand humor in a way that no other children’s book could.
I find them to be priceless and I recommend them to any child ages 6 to 12. When I was that age, it seemed like every kid wanted a copy of Where the Sidewalk Ends.
Adults will enjoy reading the poems to their kids too. Here is a favorite of mine called “Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out”. Let’s listen to the man himself.
I challenge everyone on the internet to record themselves reciting a poem from one of these two books. Upload it to YouTube. Let’s start an online challenge that does not cause bodily harm but instead feeds the soul.
