Detalhes do produto
Descrições do Produto
It was missing a piece.
And it was not happy.
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.
What it finds on its search for the missing piece is simply and touchingly told in this fable that gently probes the nature of quest and fulfillment.

In my practice, I have found it helpful in working with patients with codependency issues. It helps elaborate the differences between dependence, interdependence and codependence and normalizes the challenges we all face in different ways in our lives. Ironically maybe, the use of characters depersonalizes the discussion and helps patients step outside of themselves for just a minute to see what their behavior may look and feel like to important others in their lives.
It's also been very useful in working with patients with borderline personality disorder, as it helps them to better understand the importance of boundaries and the need vs. want idea, too. It includes a great deal of metaphor that is thought-provoking for patients and invites them into a dialogue about the challenges they face in interpersonal relationships. Very often, they can see themselves in the depictions of maladaptive relating, and they gain a new understanding of what's adaptive, why and how to achieve it. It helps solidify and give visual representation to the vital understanding of where they end and others begin.
If you consider the story, it is so simple and easy, but it is full of layered meaning and wonderful lessons for both small children and adults alike to consider. My biggest take away from this story is to remember to slow down to enjoy the little things in life - don't run so fast that you let the small joys pass you by. Also, I think it has great meaning behind friendships - not all friends (or "pieces") fit the same way so you have to know how to choose and when to let go of unhealthy relationships.
Shel Silverstein was a brilliant author and his stories are just magnificent. I love his books and highly recommend them for everyone. They have wonderful teachable moments and lots of reading enjoyment within.
I'm a children's librarian who thought she knew most of the books in our small school library, if not having personally read them, then handling them. Yes, I knew "The Missing Piece," but just discovered recently I didn't know it at all. Opened it at the beginning to that long black line. OK, I thought, I am used to the antics of writers.
After eight pages of straight line, we meet "It." "It was missing a piece,/And it was not happy." The reader sees a circle, about 7/8 complete with a pie-shaped opening that resembles a mouth. "It was missing a piece." He decides to seek his missing piece. A "missing piece?" Well, that's one way of looking at it.
He describes all the things he does living with "a missing piece": bakes in the sun, cools off in the rain, talks to a worm, smells the flowers, plays with a beetle, travels the world. Then he begins meeting various "pieces," only to discover eventually that none fit really well. Finally, he matched up, traveled with the piece, then found the excitement of two pieces living as one was no longer exciting. In fact, it was stifling, so he gently set down the missing piece and pretty much tiptoed away.
Oh, if only this were the format of a lengthy essay, I would have so much fun interpreting each part of this prose-poem. For example, going up mountains is obviously the struggles of life, rolling down mountains is surely the obstacles that knock us down, and so on. One reviewer saw the meaning of this prose-poem as a rally for non-monogamy. I think it's more a rally for being at peace with oneself, flaws and all. If we're not comfortable with our flaws, then how can we truly find our "missing piece?" Besides, a piece is just that--not whole.
See what I mean? I read this poem to my first grade class, who LOVED it! I was so surprised! It has stayed checked out for several weeks. I finally just latched onto the book, put it in my book bag to take home and write this review. I'll return it for check-out this very day. They'll never know it went missing for a day.
Truly, if you've never read this book, please do yourself a favor, go to your local library, and check it out. While you're there, locate "The Missing Piece Meets the Big O" The Missing Piece Meets the Big Oand take that home as well. I've done my good deed for the day. You're welcome.
