Tonight, while I read my son his picked book,
A DREADFUL and HORRIBLE thought overtook.
Now…before all your panties get bunched up your crack,
Realize–this is an OPINION. NOT an ATTACK.
The book my son chose was one by Dr. Suess…
And really…I’d would rather swing from a noose…
Than to have to endure any MORE of his books
Where there’s NO reason to his rhyme. I don’t see what hooks!
Loved by so many young people and grown ups alike…
But don’t you all realize…fish DON’T ride on bikes??
And those made up names…are like tongue twisters.
All they do is leave my mouth full of blisters…
From trying to pronounce them the way that I should.
REALLY…I don’t even think Dr. Suess could!
So tomorrow, when back to school they all go…
Into the recycling bin, Suess I will throw.
And then go to the store to restock my shelves
with books about knights and dragons and elves!
With authors like Scarry and Mayer…and the lot.
That make sense to read…and don’t cause brains to rot!
So Suess, on the most part, I’ll be sure to skip!
Although…my son loves his books (wouldn’t want him to flip!)
Maybe…the only solution is this (Not so bad)
Perhaps bedtime stories…should be read by HIS DAD!!
Hey…go over toYou Won’t Go Blind and enter the giveaway for $20! It ends Monday, Feb. 23 at midnight!
Best rhyme ever!
You, my dear, are so dang witty.
It is really such a pity
That the doc doesn’t do it for you
With all his crazy wordy goo
But glad you found a solution
And won’t add to the pollution
By letting daddy pull Suess from the shelves
While you stick with dragons, fairies and elves.
You are inspiring . . . I sucked it, but you rocked it!
*gripping copies of The Places You’ll Go and Green Eggs and Ham*

brava, my friend. you rocked the seussiness!

Semi-Slacker Mom says
You are trippin me out!
Colleen - Mommy Always Wins says
Now, see, I LOVES me some Seuss! Send those books our way and you can have the blasted Good Night Moon and Guess How Much I Love You (with the little brown nut hare…ha!)

Hey, so good to see you again (in a new location, with a working RSS feed, yay!), even if you don’t like Dr. Seuss. You can come take our copy of Cars and Trucks and Things that Go and give me your Seuss in exchange. I bought that because I have fond childhood memories of it, but that damn book is so boring and it feels like it never ends. 🙂
That was hysterical.
I myself like Dr. Seuss. If I NEVER have to read a Richard Scarry book again it will be too soon. Those things are 75 pages long and they go all over the place and take 2 hours to read because you have to find that stupid firely or whatever it is.
For the last month DeBoy has required Fox in Socks and Oh Say Can You Say for bedtime. Every night. I’m getting really good at it.
My son, to this day, still laughs hysterically at The Foot Book. He’s giggled at it since before he could speak.
And Holy Rhyming, my friend! I could never!
Junie B Jones- now I liked reading that sassy brat. I think it’s because she and I are quite alike. If I was a first grader, that is. (Of course, now that my 2 can read on their own I don’t read out loud to them anymore. I’m terribly dyslexic.)
hahah GREAT rhyme! Love it. Although I have to admit I love me some Seuss!
