Hug O' War - Shel Silverstein

I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

Paige, I love your blog! Most importantly I think that it is a matter of time before you become BIG!! Your illustrations are beautiful! Great job! I am new to the blog world and am enjoying finding sites like your own. There are so many creative people out there, but I must say that you are in a special corner! I look forward to seeing more of your work!

As always..completely adorable. You have GOT to read Shel Silverstein's book 'Runny Babbit'.
I bought about 3 copies for folks for presents...one for my daughter (I had to have it, and it was a great excuse) we read it and roar. You have got to read it out Loud.

Thanks Alina! :0) And likewise.

Cyplay - why yes, yes I do.

Hilkie I needed a pick-me-up that day too and reading your comment did the trick!

Hi Writing Chef, and welcome to the blog world! I had to chuckle at the mention of becoming 'big'(I wish!) - what would make me happy is just being able to draw all day without having to...well, do things like eat or wash dishes :-D

Ginger-hugs back!

Amy - I'll check it out from the library, thanks for the suggestion! I remember his 'end of the sidewalk' book as being one of my favorites when I was a kid--and I was a PICKY reader!

My daughter just got married and her little 5 year old cousin was the flower girl and did a reading of Hug o' War during the ceremony...what could possibly be better!!??
