Dr. Seuss Creations: Tizzled Topped Tufted Mazurkas

“ I’ll go to the African island of Yerka

And bring back a

tizzle-topped Tufted Mazurka

A kind of canary with quite a tall throat.

His neck is so long, if he swallows an oat

For breakfast the first day of April, they say

It has to go down such a very long way

That it gets to his stomach the fifteenth of May.”

-Dr. Seuss

If I Ran the Zoo



  1. These are darling!

  2. Great! Was this a 1 or 2 day lesson? Did you start by reading the book first?

  3. I have done these three years in a row. My kids love them!

  4. Is there a lesson plan that you use? I can not tell what was used to create these beautiful masterpieces and would like to do them with my class.

    1. Hi. I'm new here. I would love to try this, can you send the directions please? Madison

  5. Do you have a directed drawing step by step?

  6. HI, do you have the steps you used? Would love to try this with my class.
