Go, Blog. Go!

Yesterday Rebecca Ramsey of Wonders Never Cease held a blog party on Wonders of the World. I was reminded of P.D. Eastman’s Go, Dog. Go! because the term ‘blog party’ makes me think of ‘dog party’! In this case it was big blogs, little blogs, red blogs, blue blogs…What a blog party! I loved seeing how differently everyone thinks and expresses ideas on a common theme. And of course, it’s always great to celebrate good things.

So I had to pull our copy of Go, Dog. Go! from the shelf and read it again. It was a favorite when my kids were little. They called it A-Go, Go, Go. I love how the pink poodle keeps seeking approval on her crazy hat choices from the sporty devil-may-care dog.

It’s appropriate I thought of this story, because this little book of contrasts, with its ups and downs and overs and unders, (not to mention one-of-a-kind party hats), complements a day of enjoying diverse styles and tastes. If I had to choose another Wonder of the World to celebrate, it would be individuality.

If you’re wondering what sundriness exists out there in the blogosphere, go blog-hopping. If you haven’t enjoyed Go, Dog. Go! for a while, what are you waiting for? A-go, go, go.

I'm a bad person. I've never read Go, Dog, Go! However, we are going to the library today, providing that I tear myself away from the computer. So maybe...

I love Go, Dog, Go! I could recite that thing by heart. It was a favorite of all three of my kids.

Guess're a winner in my drawing!
