One Fish, Two Fish

Like Amy, we also celebrated Dr. Seuss.  We love to get out our duplos and create a "Seuss-ville".  This year's creation was lots of fun!

A few years ago we made a "cat-in-the-hat-pizza" and it has now become a tradition!  So easy and so much fun!

And in honor of the Yink who likes to drink pink ink we had a little "pink ink" of our own--or perhaps it was just strawberry milk ;)

We ended the evening with a special treat of "red fish" a la One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.  All of the boys thought that it was pretty special.

We capped the night with a reading of everyone's favorite Dr. Seuss books.  

We included a new read this year, "The Boy on Fairfield Street". It is the story of how a boy named Ted became Dr. Seuss.  It was really interesting to my 7-year-old but still a little long.  The younger boys couldn't get into.  I thought it was great! It was fun to learn more about this wonderful author and celebrate his work.


  1. I love the pink ink and red fish. Good ideas! And "The Boy on Fairfield Street" sounds interesting. I'm going to see if my library has it.

  2. Sweet celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday!

  3. Wonderful ideas! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love the pizza- My mom is a librarian and was telling me some interesting facts about that smart Dr. Seuss! (You probably already know these) Yertle the Turtle was about Hitler, Horton Hears a Who was about post-war Japan- they were the little speck that no one could hear but Horton (he dedicated it to his Japanese friend), And The Lorax was about protecting the environment, but that was obvious. One of his pen names was Theo LeSieg which is Geisel spelled backwards. I can't remember the other things she told me- she was full of such fun facts!

  5. That Pizza is sooooo cool!! Wow! I love it!
