It's Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day!
According to Wikipedia: Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American writer, poet, and cartoonist most widely known for his children’s books written under the pen names Dr. Seuss, Theo LeSieg and, in one case, Rosetta Stone.
Geisel's birthday, March 2, has been adopted as the annual date for National Read Across America Day, an initiative on reading created by the National Education Association.
I love Dr. Seuss. Always have.
My daughters and I are celebrating today! First, each daughter will pick their favorite Dr. Seuss book for a Bach read-a-thon (they only have a half day of school today). Then we are going to see The Lorax.
Find some time today to appreciate Seuss and reading in general!
I wanted to show a little Seuss love by sharing an earlier Seuss post.
From my 11/9/11 post.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!"
In a moment of creativity . . . I wrote this little diddy with Dr. Seuss still in my head:
Come on, life, throw at me what you will.
My bat is ready and with it my skill.
I will focus on the words and my story to tell.
All of your attempts to stop me, well, they can go to hell.
What's your favorite Seuss book?
