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!

Find "Oh the Pets You Can Get!" on Amazon
