I love this book. I remember, like it was yesterday (if yeserday was 23 years ago), sitting on the floor of the library and thumbing through the pages of “Where the Sidewalk Ends”. I would read over and over poems like: “Edge of the World”, “Boa Constrictor”, and “Melinda Mae”. I must confess that I don’t read poems normally. I find them confusing most of the time, but this book of poems is just right for my level of poetry intellect!
And now my children love the book as well. I bought it a few years ago and now and then they bring me the book and we spend a hour or so reading our favourite poems…like we did this morning.
