Sel Shilverstein has a weat grebsite!

Shel Silverstein online by HarperCollins Publishers, designed by Ta-Da Inc; 2003-2008; http://www.shelsilverstein.com/indexSite.html.

I had to include this website because his poetry helped my son learn to read with inflection and fluidity.  Being able to hear the poems read out loud benefits all elementary aged children.  Even better, the site includes games and activities for children and also links for ideas for teachers and parents.

I would include a link to his website on the children’s library website under “authors” as well as on a bookmark with other poets’ websites for distribution in April.  The ALSC page with all of the author’s web links is invaluable for librarians and teachers.

Additionally, I would be sure that homeschooling families, reading tutors and speech therapists know about this site because it is a wonderful tool for teaching how to read with inflection.
