To celebrate the author/poet/illustrator  get out your Dutter and Dutter, cake cutters, play your Drum-tummied Snumm and your Hinkle-Horn Honkers! The Time-Telling Fish and Great Birthday Bird would like to recite a Birthday Poem! (a smooshing snooshing of absurd words and images. Enjoy!)

Silly sally, dilly dally

All the day long

With striped legging-ly

Tiptoeing-y

Across the pages of bloom

 

A sniff, a snaff

A purple butterfly bath

Bubbles float up and

pop   *     pop  *     pop

Suds fizz down – plop

                                  plop

                                        plop

 

And Silly Sally dallies on…

 

~ Mary Jo Campbell

 

What kinds of characters and worlds can you create today to honor the Sultan of Silly, Dr. Seuss?
