April Giveaway: Where the Sidewalk Ends

April Giveaway: Where the Sidewalk Ends

April is National Poetry Month - so we’ve chosen the best collection of poetry ever crafted by mankind for our April Giveaway. I’m talking, of course, about Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends - the most perfect way to introduce poetry to any human.

Update 4/28/19: This giveaway is now closed! Congratulations to Maggie K. on winning!

Did you grow up reading this poems like I did? Have you shared it with your kids yet? What’s your favorite poem from this classic collection of children’s poems? Mine is most certainly Hug O’ War.

I will not play at tug o’ war
I’d rather play at hug o’ war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

Need I say more? You and your children need this collection of poems in your life. They’re absurd and zany and thoughtful and occasionally quite deep. So enter the giveaway below for your chance to add this wonderful, essential book to your home collection.


There will be one winner of a hardback copy of Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein. The winner will be chosen at random after the ending date of April 28th at 12:00 a.m. EST. Entry into monthly giveaways is a reward for our subscribers, so make sure to subscribe to our newsletter. (You can find the sign-up box for our newsletter at the bottom of every page on DadSuggests.com.)

And, as you’ll see, there are a few optional ways to earn extra entries if you’d like to increase your chances! The winners will be contacted through the e-mail they provide and will have to provide a US address for shipping at that time. Open to US mailing addresses only and you must be 18+ to enter. You can also refer to the official rules.

Good luck! And help us spread the poetry love to any parents or teachers out there who don’t have their own copy of this legendary book yet!
