Do you ever make up words like Dr. Seuss did?
Yes! The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library books are all about science and they all rhyme so sometimes I need to make up a rhyming word. In my book "Oh the Pets You Can Get!" I made up the land of Gerpletz.
I'm the Cat in the Hat
I love pets as you see.
You can meet lots of pets
if you travel with me.
We are off the faraway
land of Gerpletz
where they know quite a lot
about caring for pets.
It helps keep things moving and the students love the funny new words!
