Boogs had a Seuss inspired breakfast one morning this week featuring The Cat in the Hat. The Cat's hat is made out of beet pancakes and bananas. I drew the Cat's face on Babybel cheese and added fresh berries to this breakfast. Boogs is not a super fan of beet pancakes, but he is a super fan of Dr. Seuss.
I thought I had read every Dr. Seuss book written but this was the first time I have read McElligot's Pool. Marco sits beside a small pool imagining all of the fish that will swim through an underground brook from the ocean to get to his baited hook. Boogs enjoyed studying the illustrations. He said the Dog Fish chasing the Catfish was his favorite fish in the book. I thought the Eskimo Fish from beyond the Hudson Bay were pretty cute. We had to have a fish themed lunch to go with this book. In the ELB lunchbox: almond butter & jelly fish and seahorse, Goldfish crackers, tomato fish eggs in broccoli coral, and goldfish colored mango.
After school, we got out our Playdough to recreate some of the fantastic Seussian fish in McElligot's Pool.
