Sir Silly: The World Where Words Play by David Dayan Fisher...Review & Give Away!
The world is filled with so much that is serious and grim. We all need to put that aside once in a while. Well, meet Sir Silly. He thinks in rhyme and always lets his imagination dance freely. It seems to have never left him since he was a little boy.
He plays with words and the pictures that they can create. Some play with paint, chalk, or pencils. Others are actors and play with characters and their voices. Then there are those who give us music, who play with tunes and words together.
David Dayan Fisher's newest book, Sir Silly: The World Where Words Play is all about making fun out of having fun--and sometimes being funny while doing so. The cover, and the 37 fun line illustrations that accompany each poem, were created by award-wining artist, Patricia Krebs.
This book is just as promised....SILLY! The poems in these pages had my boys laughing out loud and me too. There are poems about a cow who insists on meowing and consequently infuriates a cat in the process (The Cow Said Meow), a fun poem called The Body which highlights all the wonderful things your body can do and A&W's favorite called The Croc That Eats Bad Kids! This little book is just filled with big laughs. I also really liked this book from an early reader standpoint. I will read a poem with the boys and then ask them to read it. The short poems are perfect snippets for them to get a little reading practice in...all while giggling and being silly!
I applaud the author, David Dayan Fisher, for bringing to the table something important that we adults tend to forget about...being silly and having fun. Both qualities which are monumentally important in the lives of children (and grownups too!). What a smart and silly man. Well done Sir Silly! Pick up your copy today on Amazon..
