Note on Age-Appropriateness

These “notes” are ideas for essays/longer posts. If you see one that you think would make a good essay/post or that you just want to see what I would do with it, please let me know in the comments or in an e-mail! I would love to take on a challenge like that and give you more of what you want.

We got Manchild Where the Sidewalk Ends for his birthday this week. He’s 5 now, and, we thought, would appreciate some Shel Silverstein. He’s close. On some of it. We read him several poems before bedtime the night the night of his birthday and enjoyed listening to him laugh and laugh and then stop suddenly and ask, “Wait. Was that one funny?”
