Line drawings and unadorned text record the extended search of a certain something for its missing piece

HARPERCOLL

From Shel Silverstein, the celebrated author of The Giving Tree and Where the Sidewalk Ends, comes The Missing Piece, a charming fable that gently probes the nature of quest and fulfillment.

It was missing a piece. And it was not happy. What it finds on its search for the missing piece is simply and touchingly told. This inventive and heartwarming book can be read on many levels, and Silverstein’s iconic drawings and humor are sure to delight fans of all ages.

So it set off in search
of its missing piece.
And as it rolled
it sang this song—
Oh I'm lookin' for my missin' piece
I'm lookin' for my missin' piece
Hi-dee-ho, here I go,
Lookin' for my missin' piece.

And don't miss Runny Babbit Returns, the new book from Shel Silverstein!

I just love this story and love sharing it with my children. Just a guy, rolling through life, looking for his missing piece. I recommend the read!

I really liked the missing piece because I liked the song and guess what? I even made a little tune for it! I thought it was about friendship and adventures. Bye!

"La pieza faltante" es un libro para niños y adultos que puede relacionarse con la motivación y la autoestima. La historia en metáfora sobre la búsqueda de aquello que sentimos nos hace falta, es contada e ilustrada de manera sencilla y divertida. A veces vamos por la vida sin mirar, sin apreciar lo que nos rodea o a las personas que nos rodean; no disfrutamos de su presencia; otras veces nos lanzamos a una búsqueda constante por cosas o personas que creemos necesitar y forzamos su adquisición o presencia para luego olvidarnos que contamos con ellos o nos topamos con obstáculos, actitudes, respuestas que nos hacen sentir incómodos, que nos lastiman. ¿Estamos bien con lo que somos y tenemos? ¿Lo apreciamos? ¿O acaso vamos por la vida buscando "nuestra pieza faltante"?
