The Missing Piece

One of the best books I've found to remind people, young and old, that they have to be their own piece long before they can be anyone else's! Happiness comes from the inside, and Mr. Silverstein demonstrates that elegantly and precisely in this beautiful life lesson, disguised as a children's book. A must-have for readers of all ages!

More than a children's book...

I would just like to point out that Shel Silverstein may be known as a wonderful and famous children's book author, but these books have been extremely helpful to me throughout college and beyond also. I honestly think it would do everyone good to read his books - short, simple, and to the point. There is more to these stories than the amusing drawings - a deeper meaning that everyone could stand to read; and they are on a level at which anyone literate could read the stories and understand the message. Wonderful.

A way to look at life

I was given this book as a child and it continues to delight me every time I read it. I have never found another book that sums up how to look at life in such a simple and creative way. I live my life a certain way because of this lovely story.
