A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein

Who has not read A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein? I bet you cannot name one person who has not read this wonderful book.


A Light in the Attic delights with remarkable characters and hilariously profound poems in a collection readers will return to again and again.

Here is the attic you will find Backward Bill, Sour Face Ann, the Meehoo with an Exactlywatt, and the Polar Bear in the Frigidaire. You will talk with Broiled Face, and find out what happens when Somebody steals your knees, you get caught by the Quick-Digesting Gink, a Mountain snores, and They Put a Brassiere on the Camel.

Come on up to the attic of Shel Silverstein and let the light bring you home.

I remember reading this book when I was a child, and would laugh at all of the silly poems that was told. Thirty years later, I picked it up again, and I laughed again. Reading some of my favorite poems to my husband while we sat outside and enjoyed the sun.

Reading the A Light in the Attic brought me back to my childhood, and helped me escape the chaos, and put a smile on my face.

If you would like the feeling of your childhood, please, pick it up, and read it in your fort, in the playground, or even just outside with your family and share the silly poems.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Suess

Ok, now I know you had to have read this story when you were a child. An adorable Grinch (yes I said that), who does not want anything to do with Whoville. And of course, a curious child who becomes obsessed with the Grinch, wants to be friends with them, and does not want to believe that someone can be so mean.

I mean, seriously. Even you have to admit, that the Grinch, is freaking adorable. I am a fan of the classic cartoon, and of course, the Jim Carrey version (I have both hehehe).

I used to have the story, but of course, I lose it through the many moves. Every year, I want to grab a copy of this beloved story, but I always forget. I haven’t even unpacked my favorite Christmas movie yet, just to have the tradition of at least watching one of the renditions of this story. I just love it.

Dr. Suess is a genius, and I have always loved the way his stories were written. You can be 100 years old, and you will still feel like a kid again just reading the story again.
