Runny Babbit Returns Review

    You have to stay sharp to be able to read the little twists of words and not lose what it's saying. It's a fun little book, much like the first Runny Babbit. These are poems previously unpublished by Shel and they have made a new volume. They are funny and there were quite a few laughs to be had from the funny sounding words. It's a tongue twister as well to say them out loud when I'm not used to some of these words on my tongue. Runny Babbit is classic Shel.

    The usual Silverstein magic! Perfect for reading aloud to torable adots or your friends. ;)

    I love Shel! Don't concentrate too hard on the mixed up words. Lol.

    It's always nice to have more Shel Silverstein. These were discovered unpublished poems. Maybe because I read this quickly, I didn't like it as much as I remembered liking the first book which at least had a sort of consistent logic to it which this one lacked. Still, it'll be a great addition to any Shel Silverstein library.

    This is hilarious. Great for practicing phonological awareness for teachers and kids. "Runny rode the Wherris Feel, and then the cumper bars, and then the charapute, and then the stooting shar."
