New Silverstein Preview

Interested in getting a little preview of Every Thing on It, the new, posthumously published Shel Silverstein book? The editors at the New York Times use the upcoming publication as jumping off point to introdcue the theme of their Back to School feature on children's books and offer a look at several of the book's new (to us) poems.
