I have loved Dr. Seuss and his adorkable books for…well, forever, it seems. I loved them when I was a kid, and I loved them when my kids were little kids and I read them aloud, and I think I may love them even more, now that I write for kids. Theodore Geisel was genius–is genius–and as soon as I have fifteen free minutes, I’m dashing to the bookstore to read What Pet Should I Get?
I won’t even care if it’s not up to the usual Seussical brilliant standards. After all, if he’d wanted to publish it, I suspect he would have. But more Seuss in the world–even so-so Seuss–is cause for celebration. And, I think, inspiration. You can read for yourself if you have a minute to dash over to The Muffin for “Green Eggs and Inspiration.”
I promise that I didn’t wax too poetic over there…
Okay, that’s a bald-faced lie. I did wax a little poetic. I mean, I just love Dr. Seuss. And I would read him here or there, I would read him in a chair, or with a bear or on a dare.
I do so love that timeless guy. Thank you, thank you, Dr. Seuss. *sigh*
Cathy–Do you have a favorite? I love “Gertrude McFuuzz” and “Yertle the Turtle,” along with many others.
Oh, it’s so hard ’cause I love HORTON HEARS A WHO and I STILL read HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS every Christmas and THE BITTER BUTTER BATTLE is a classic, of course. But there’s something about GREEN EGGS AND HAM. I do so love the message, and Sam-I-Am. 🙂
One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish…Dr. Seuss knew how to hook them. Thanks for stopping by. Wesson oil!?
I know, Linda. Kids do the darndest things, right? 🙂
Great post, Cathy! I also love Dr. Seuss. And I would read him anywhere too, I would read him at the zoo or while shouting woo-hoo, and I would certainly read him along with you! (Too much? Yeah, thought so!). I’ll head over to The Muffin and leave a comment. Thanks for the smile, and the memories, today 🙂
Oh, thanks, Theresa (and for your lovely comment at The Muffin as well)! And yes, I will read Dr. Seuss along with you any time you like! There can NEVER be too much when it comes to Dr. Seuss! 🙂
Very clever, Cathy! I’ll look forward to reading this book, too!
Thanks, Tina! I’m gonna love it, no matter what. 😉
Though I’m not a puffin I will swim off to the Muffin. (*sigh* I tried.)
