Today was Read Across America Day AND Dr. Seuss Day in honor of his birthday! I’ve always loved Dr. Seuss. I fondly remember having a subscription to the books..you know, where once a month a couple appeared in the mail? It was always such a thrill. I still have my collection and now my children have read them!! His creative spirit is admirable as well as his huge heart for humanity and the environment.
I’m glad he still is enjoyed by each generation. My 7 year old found some pencils, erasers, and bookmarks with Dr. Seuss characters on them at the store on Friday night, so she was more than prepared to celebrate for the entire year, not just the day!
What Dr. Seuss book inspired you? Which books do you love?
Dr. Seuss never gets old in our hearts!! Here are some fave quotes, perfect for anyone:
“Today is your day. Your mountain is waiting. So … get on your way.
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
“If things start happening, don’t worry, don’t stew, just go right along and you’ll start happening too.
“A person’s a person, no matter how small.
“It is better to know how to learn than to know.
“Be who you are and say what you mean. Because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
“You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And you are the one who’ll decide where to go.”
“To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.”
