Don't Bump The Glump

You know how kids love to read the same books over and over? Ours are pros. Isaac purposely likes to hear stories over and over so he can memorize them and tell the stories. My mom bought us Shell Siverstein's Don't Bump The Glump a while ago and the boys have loved it. Short poems that tell silly stories.

When we read the book now they stop us and say, "oh, let me do that one!" And then they recite the poem. It is more fun to hear them say the poems than us and we got Isaac on film so we could remember how cute he sounds when he tells them. It makes us smile every time. I am putting the words down below in case you can't understand.

So, enjoy!

The following poems were taken from Shel Silverstein's Don't Bump the Glump

The Crawfee

That silly fish the crawfee
Has been swimming in my coffee.
But now I've drunk it up
And he isn't in my cup.
And he's nowhere to be found....
Do you think that he has drowned?

See The Muffer
Above, you see the Muffer, who...
You don't?
Well anyway, you see his tracks, the Muffer has gone to sup---
You don't?
Why that sly old beast...
I do believe he's gone and covered them up!

The Zrbangdraldnk has just arrived
And it's up to me to announce him.... do you pronounce him...?

The Gletcher
See the Gletcher in his cage,
His claws are sharp, his teeth are double.
Thank heaven he's lovked up safe inside,
Or we'd all be in terrible trouble!

The slithergadee has crawled out of the sea.
He may catch all the others, but he won't catch me.
No you won't catch me, old Slithergadee,
You may catch all the others, but you wo-----

The Wild Gazite
Late last night
I'd a terrible fight
With a wild Gazite
With eyes of white
And a fifty-foot height
And he gave me a fright
When he gave me a bite
And then squeezed me so tight.
But I fixed him, alright--
I turned on the light!

Our son used to "read" From Head to Toe by Eric Carle again... and again... and again. My favorite part was when he would do the motions for the Alligator and "wriggle" his hips -- it was to die for!

Isaac is so cute, and I glad to see you're teaching your sons to be little bibliophiles.
