Maybe next year we'll try Bubble Gum Day here at the Library. We can still celebrate this year with a lively rhyming picture book by Lisa Wheeler, illustrated by Laura Huliska-Beith, titled Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum [JP WHE].
Here's a little taste of what it's like to get stuck in some melting gum on the road:
Along comes a crow...
An old, weathered crow,
An old weathered
The crow's stuck now!
Talking crow, talking crow,
Loud and loony, squawking crow,
Crying, cawing, shocking crow,
Every feather's stuck!
That should be enough for you to chew on! I fear any more will blow your mind!
I'll let Ella Fitzgerald sing us out of this sticky post:
If we're lucky, we may find some other bubble gum celebrations going on today at the Poetry Friday Round-Up being hosted by Elizabeth Steinglass.
