Nine Shel Silverstein Stories Animated

This week I'm taking a few days off to ski, play with my dogs, visit with friends and family, and generally recharge my batteries. If you're on vacation this week too, I hope that you're having a great vacation. While I'm away I'm rerunning the most popular posts of the year. The selections are based on pageviews during 2012.

Last year I shared an animated video of Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree. Yesterday, through an Open Culture post, I discovered eight more short animated versions of Shel Silverstein's works. The videos can be found on the Shel Silverstein Books channel on YouTube. I've embedded Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me Too! below.

Video - The Giving Tree

Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree was one of the first books I read on my own as a child. I also recall watching an animated film of the story in elementary school. I was happy to learn through Open Culture that the same film is available on YouTube. The video below is the same animated short film narrated by Shel Silverstein that we were shown when I was a student at Robertson Elementary School in the 80's.
