Creative Seuss-esque Works

In addition to the Dr. Seuss food lunch and reading and reading (and reading!) Dr. Seuss books, Kiddo created some Seuss-esque works.



The first was a book he sat down and wrote and illustrated of his own accord after we read "There's a Wocket in my Pocket." He created his own characters, like a fook on the book. Page after page, whipped out like it was nothing. No, the drawings aren't his highest quality. Yes, the spelling is terrible. But that matters less than the fact that once he started the project, he followed through with it all the way to the end. In fact, the back of the last picture says "The End." Very fun!


The second thing was something I requested he do. After we read so many Dr. Seuss books, I asked both Kiddo and Kutey to draw: A new kind of fish for McElligot's Pool, a new creature There's a Wocket in my Pocket, and a new sleeper for The Sleep Book. I asked that he color them, too. He whipped these out. And he made an entirely different character for the Wocket. Kutey was still feeling a bit tired and did not do the drawings. She has been drawing up a storm lately, too. Just not Seuss-esque.
