To quote Dr Seuss: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” I loved Dr Seuss as a child, an adult and a parent. As a reader, a writer and a poet. I have to admit I wasn't initially keen on his artwork - as a child some of the images frightened me. But they have grown on me and with me. My own kids loved them from the word go (Go being one of the 250 words!)
Here are my favorite books:
- One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
- Fox in Sox (I love those tweetle-beetles)
- Yertle the Turtle
- Oh the Places You'll Go
Kids can have lots of Dr Seuss fun on-line here at Seussville.
And now I'll just sneak in a few favourite quotes:
“A person's a person, no matter how small.” (Horton Hears a Hoo)
“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try!” (Oh the Thinks You Can Think)
Happy birthday, Dr Seuss!
