I've read and loved Dr. Seuss, and now my two kids love and read those fun and quirky books as well... As Liz Kennedy says, "What makes Dr. Seuss so popular? Is it because generations of children of all ages have enjoyed the messages, witty rhymes, clever plots, and zany characters in his books?" Then, she writes, "That's certainly part of it, but Dr. Seuss also deserves acclaim for pioneering the development of entertaining books for beginning readers, books with controlled vocabularies plus engaging text and illustrations."
Here's one of my favorite quotes from Dr. Seuss: "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..."
I encourage you to join me in reading and re-reading the books of Dr. Seuss today! Which book(s) will you read? And, where will those marvellous lines take you?
