What's New

Welcome to the new ShelSilverstein.com!

August 2013

Come in! Come in!

If things look a bit different around here, it’s because they are: we’ve redesigned Shel Silverstein’s digital home to give you a more user-friendly and simple-to-navigate site.

You’ll now be able to more easily search for your favorite books, play the fun interactive games such as “Practice Being a Poet,” send e-cards to your friends, and download activities for kids to learn in the classroom and at home. So, come, take a look around!

Over the course of the next year, we’ll be celebrating many Shel Silverstein milestones, including the 50th anniversaries of Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back, The Giving Tree, Don’t Bump the Glump!, and A Giraffe and a Half, and the 40th anniversary of Where the Sidewalk Ends, as well as the first-ever publication of The Giving Tree as an ebook in February 2014.

As part of this 16-month celebration, we’ll be adding new content and resources, as well as exclusive art from the Shel Silverstein Estate archives, to this site and Shel’s official Facebook page—stay tuned!
