Dr. Seuss Day Challenge

Today’s Dr. Seuss Day, or Read Across America Day, as it’s also known. This is a special day — it’s Dr. Seuss’s birthday! I LOVE when my mommy reads me stories, so I can imagine how happy children are when their family reads them stories!

Before I get to today’s post… remember the post I did last month about Pinterest? Well, I recently found out that there is one line of code you could add to your website’s header, that will prevent visitors from pinning anything. Check it out under the 3-1-12 Update on this page.

Now for today’s challenge…

On Read Across America Day, pick out a book and read it to your child, and your furry ones! Random House and the National Education Association (NEA) ask you to participate in this second annual Read Across America. Check the end of this post for special links for participating in today’s event!

Dr. Seuss Day Challenge…


Dr. Seuss Day Challenge

My friends over at Da Weenies of Florida and Zoolatry, are celebrating Dr. Seuss Day with a fun challenge! Today anything goes — “a funny picture — a silly rhyme, whatever you do ~ will be just fine!”

I decided to write a little Dr. Seuss-like rhyme…

It started one night
I was put in a car.
They opened the door
And said, “Here we are!”

They carried me out
And let me inside.
I was scared and I wanted
To go run and hide.

I was ever so cautious,
I was light on my feet.
I didn’t know whom
In the house I would meet!

And then I was in,
Inside the house.
I then heard a squeak,
But it wasn’t a mouse.

It was big and was furry,
And had four legs too!
But it ran away from me,
It didn’t know what to do!

It was my new sister, “Nala,”
They said with a smile.
You’ll both learn to like
Each other after a while.

I couldn’t believe it.
I couldn’t be sad.
What a great life I was starting,
I had to be glad!

A new sister and family,
How awesome is that?!
I couldn’t be happier,
Than the Cat in the Hat!

Here are a couple of pics of me when I was a puppy — that was just about 1½ years ago!

My ears were silly even back then!
