“I am not your missing piece.
I am nobody’s piece.
I am my own piece.
and even if I was
somebody’s missing piece,
I don’t think I’d be yours!”
With those lines above, who would have thought that they actually came from a children’s book?
Well, yup they truly are. Shel Silverstein’s “The Missing Piece” was created for the young readers. In fact, you could already tell since the book is well illustrated. However, though it was really intended for the young ones, it is still able to convey a message to readers of all ages.
Although classified as a Children’s Book, this is one creation perfect not only for kids, kids at heart, but actually for everyone. The illustrations are deceiving but if you read carefully your heart, you’ll realize, “Hey, this book is cool. I think I’ll keep it coz I’m also looking for a missing piece of me”
Some people who have read this book already said that the story is all about love and finding your match in this world. It’s true. But not 100 percent true.
