A Poem A Day By Helen H. Moore (and other poets)
Boogs and I were inspired by a poem for lunch today.
Roy G. Biv
Roy G. Biv is an odd name for a fellow,
but what his name means is Red Orange Yellow.
The G is for Green which as you may know
comes right in the middle of every rainbow.
Next: Blue and Indigo more pale than dark.
Then V for Violet - and that completes the arc!
by Carol Weston
In the Laptop lunchbox: a rainbow of colors, orange carrots, green kiwi, yellow cheese, red(ish) ham, blue blueberry, almonds, and pumpkin chocolate chip muffin.
The GUM Chewing Rattler by Joe Hayes
This lunch was part of a Bento Blogger & Friends blog hop. See the details here.
Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing by Judi Barrett
Boogs thinks this book is hilarious. Last year, we used a different page in the book for inspiration for a chicken lunch. Today's lunch has a snake slithering out of his pants. In the lunchbox: plums, broccoli, spinach, Clif Bar snake, cheese stick snake slithering out of ham & salami pants, and carrot snakes.

Too Many Toys by David Shannon
I think this book pretty accurately describes Boogs' toy collection. The boy in the story has toys everywhere, too many to play with them all. His mother decides it is time to sort some of them out to give them away. After a very trying day, a box of toys has been set aside to leave the house. This book makes me want to go organize and purge the playroom. After reading this book, Boogs said, "I think I have just the right amount of toys. We don't have to get rid of anything." In the lunchbox: ham & cheese boy wearing a space helmet, milk, pretzel pick-up sticks, grape balls, salad with tomato marbles, and two small lego-like candies.
Boogs was fascinated with this book. It has more than 101 palindromes, words or phrases that are spelled exactly the same forwards and backwards. In the story, Bob's teacher pointed out to the class that "BOB" is a palindrome. This freaked Bob out a little bit. Then he began to find palindromes everywhere: Mom, Dad, Anna, Nan, eye, pup, race car, noon, rotor, and many more. At the end of the book, he figured out a way to stop being a palindrome. He decided to stop calling himself Bob and go by his full name. Uh-oh, even his full name is a palindrome - Robert Trebor. In the lunchbox: pb&j BOB sandwich, sad faced Babybel Bob, MOM picks on tomatoes, DAD picks on olives, LEVEL picks on strawberries, and yogurt topped with palindromes.
