A blog for kids (and their parents) who love books, words, and dreaming big...
I'm so glad you stopped by! Welcome.

My word for this week is dillydally.  An action word, or verb, it means "to waste time; dawdle" or "to postpone what you should be doing".

Hurry up -- we need to go!  Don't dillydally!

I think dillydally is a very silly word. :)  I used it several times last week, in a story I wrote about a very silly girl who loves to rhyme.  Can you guess what her name might be? 

(Hint: Part of it rhymes with dillydally.)*

I'd love to hear what silly... or not-so-silly... sentences you can come with, using the word dillydally!

*Her name is Silly Sally McMally.  Were you close?
