Where the sidewalk ends

 What was your favorite book when you were in elementary school? For many that I know it was Dr. Seuss or Where the Wild Things Are. It was a little different for me. The first book I remember loving was Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends. From the very beginning on the “Invitation”, I was hooked.

“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!
