Our Current Favorite Poem

There's a polar bear
In our Frigidaire—
He likes it 'cause it's cold in there.
With his seat in the meat
And his face in the fish
And his big hairy paws
In the buttery dish,
He's nibbling the noodles,
He's munching the rice,
He's slurping the soda,
He's licking the ice.
And he lets out a roar
If you open the door.
And it gives me a scare
To know he's in there—
That polary bear
In our Fridgitydaire.

-Shel Silverstein
This is one of Calvin's favorite poems to have read to him at bed time. I am a huge Shel Silverstein fan thanks to Mrs. Rhodes in 5th and 6th grade! So, for Christmas I got Calvin his first book of Shel Silverstein poems, "A Light In The Attic" so he could enjoy them as much as I do. So far, he thinks they are pretty funny. :-)
