About Don’t Bump the Glump
Don’t Bump the Glump!: and other Fantasies by Shel Silverstein is a collection of short poems based on wonderfully creative made up characters. The poems are creative, short and lyrical. They are great for memorizing. They actually reminded us of Dr. Seuss’s “There is a Wocket in my Pocket”. They share the same creative type of characters and rhythmic flow.
This book is filled with stunning ink and watercolor drawings, depicting the wonderful world of Shel Silverstein’s poetry. The simple but playful drawings are inspiring, they have a simple child like beauty that makes you feel giddy.
This is a fabulous and fun book. Kids love hearing it read aloud over and over again and love to read it themselves. It inspires creativity and establishes a love for rhyme. It doesn’t get much better than that.
