The Grouchy Postman (Picklesoda Poetry Project 4)

The Grouchy Postman

It’s the mail you see, it never stops
everyday I go to work there’s more and more
it fills my mail truck to the top
delivering so much mail makes my back sore and sore

I wish just for once I’d get a break
you know aside from National Holidays
maybe a vacation is what I should take
then I wouldn’t work in such a grouchy way

Chair

Have a seat in this chair,
with the head of a bear.

A wolf’s head’s there too,
Too scary for you?

Lizard Drool

PPP (Picklesoda Poetry Project)

Sometimes Dr. Seuss makes me question my sanity.  This week the girls have read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish several times and can’t get enough of it.  I assumed the book would involve counting, colors and fish.  I was clearly mistaken.  Dr. Seuss took me for a wild ride that makes even this video seem to make sense.  As always the girls share their thoughts below.

Else (she’s learning to roll over, kind of like a puppy)

Someone needs to sit the Nook down and teach him how to read.

Mabel (she’s into wearing jean shorts now)

If I had Ish’s wish dish I probably wouldn’t just wish for fish.  Ish really needs to take advantage of the wish dish and get something cooler like jean shorts.

Honeybear (she’s good on her tummy)

So in the book Ned has a difficult time with the size of his bed.  Either his head is sticking out or his feet are sticking out.  Despite my small size I fully understand this issue.  Just today I woke up with legs sticking out of my crib.  What’s that all about?  Anyway I think what Dr. Seuss has done here is reworked James Joyce’s Ulysses in such a way that it is not only accessible but enjoyable.  The same detailed stream of consciousness writing is happening here.  From one page to the next I can’t say that there is a cohesive story.  On one page two guys are talking on a broken phone and then the next one features children finding a “Clark” somewhere.  Yet somehow it sticks together and I found myself going back to it again and again throughout the last week.  The main difference between the two works is that one is a highly enjoyable work of children’s literature and the other is an incomprehensible 700 page book.  What I’d suggest is on June 16th rather than celebrate Bloomsday just read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.

Pickle Soda Publishing recently added 3 baby girls (triplets) to the team. They were born on Christmas Eve and are already avid readers. They’ve each picked their current favorite book that isn’t put out by Pickle Soda.

Mabel’s favorite

DownloadedFileWill the hippopotamus ever catch a break? (Spoiler: She does)  Mabel likes it when the armadillo shows up.

Honeybear’s favorite

0763642975There’s three baby bears in this one and they are each the best bear in the whole world.  Honeybear (Juniper) likes the part where the three baby bears are laying on mama bear’s tummy.

Else’s favorite
haroldpurpleHarold happens to have a purple crayon that he can draw anything with.  He uses his powers for good.  He gives nine kinds of pie to a hungry moose and a deserving porcupine.  Else likes when he gets scared and accidently draws an ocean he falls into.

The girls plan to continue to pick favorite books.  This week they’ve been reading a lot of Dr. Seuss.
