Today is Dr Seuss Day 2020! My sisters tell me they look forward to this day every year. Dr Seuss had so many fun books, it makes for fun blog posts. Emma was a big fan of his books, her favorite being Go, Dog, Go because of the hats. She wrote her own short version of the book back in 2012.
Since it is my first Dr Seuss Day, my sisters asked me to do today’s post. I agreed. After going through lots of his books, I settled on Green Eggs and Ham for my choice.
It’s not easy trying to write like that guy did. He makes it all so fun, and the words rhyme. Luckily, I had a lot of advance notice to work on my own text. Once I got into the groove, it was rather fun! Thank goodness Bailie let me borrow her Dr Seuss thinking cap! She did a really fun post last year about nose work, but I am not old enough to be as creative as she is.
Okay, here it goes…my rendition of Green Eggs and Ham…and, yes, we made some real green eggs and ham for my story.
Green Eggs And Ham, Yes Ma’am!
Olivia I am,
And I say woof to green eggs and ham!
I will eat them here or there.
I will eat them anywhere.
I would eat them in my house.
I would eat them with a side of mouse.
I’ll take a portion in the car,
Or wherever the green eggs are.
I love eggs in red or blue or green,
In any color, eggs are a fine cuisine.
I’ll eat green eggs and ham,
But not green eggs and spam.
Hold it with the spam!
Olivia I am,
But I don’t do spam.
Would I eat at night in the dark?
How about in a local park?
Why yes, I would eat green eggs and ham in the dark,
And in a local park.
I like green eggs and ham!
Yes, Olivia I am!
I will enjoy them in my house,
And with a side of mouse.
I’ll eat green eggs and ham in the car,
If that is where they are.
I’ll eat eggs in any color, even green,
Because they are a fine cuisine.
I’ll always eat green eggs and ham,
But never eat green eggs and spam.
I’ll eat them at night in the dark
Even at our local park.
I do like my green eggs and ham,
And Olivia I am!
Hope you enjoyed my little story for Dr Seuss Day 2020. I really do like green eggs and ham too!
