Happy Birthday Dr Suess!

Oh, the places you'll go! There is fun to be done! There are points to be scored. there are games to be won. And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all. Fame! You'll be famous as famous can be, with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.

Dr Seuss and his stories will always hold a special place in my heart.  I have read his imaginative stories to many children over the years.  I have many memories of reading One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish to kids I baby sat as a teen, siblings and now to my own children.  They are stories that linger and I am sure that most of us have one of his books that we know line by line.  For me that is Oh the Places You’ll Go since I was part of a group of graduates that read it at my high school graduation.

Another book that will stick with me is  the first one my son read back to me.  I will never forget the day that Mstr. S surprised me with his reading skills by reading And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street front to back and only needing help with one or two words.  To say I was floored is an understatement since he was just 4 at the time.  I didn’t even know he could read on his own.  More often then not it’s Dr Suess books that I find tucked under his pillow even now.  With the release of The Lorax in theaters I decided to add to our collection and a shiny new copy is on the way for my youngest daughters 4th birthday.  Who knows, maybe by the end of the year she’ll be reading it back to me?
