Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

I thought I’d do a post about Dr. Seuss since it’s his birthday today. My favorite Dr. Seuss book has got to be “One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish.”

I have most of it memorized.

The copy I have is very well loved! The corners are chewed up. The pages torn, taped and torn again. The binding has let loose. My book has been read millions of times in the last 21 years. I read from it to ALL of my children. I will fix it up...again... and read it to my grandchildren some day! It is definitely one of my top two children’s books ever!

I love Dr. Seuss’ way of looking at the world. He definitely understood the necessity for adding a little bit of silliness into our lives. Where would we all be if he had never written down his wonderfully wackiness!

I, too, LOVE Dr. Suess. He's one of my favorite authors. I even recorded a recitation of my own favorite, "And To Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street", today in honor of "Read Across America Day":

My favorite was The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins - and Oh The Places You'll Go. Love Dr. Seuss!
