Shel Silverstein may have passed away in 1999, but his memory lives on through his poetry. Find out more about Silverstein's new book, 'Every Thing On It.'

Shel Silverstein books and poetry continue to be a staple in children's lives to this day. From the 'Giving Tree' to 'Where The Sidewalk Ends,' Silverstein is just as much a part of growing up as learning your A,B,C's or fractions.

Silverstein may have passed away in his Key West home on May 9, 1999 after suffering heart attack, but his work lives on. His newest book 'Every Thing On It' contains previously unpublished poems for children that he wrote later in his life. The book can be found on Amazon for $10.99.
