Happy Birthday, Dr Seuss!

Theodor Seuss Geisel,
better known as "Dr. Seuss,"
was born on March 2, 1904.
He published
44 children's books,
which are beloved and cherished by
generations of new readers and
not-so-new readers.

In honor of his birthday,
here are five of my
favorite quotes from the works
of this amazing author!

"There is no one alive who is Youer than You." -- from Happy Birthday to You

"It is fun to have fun but you have to know how." -- from The Cat in the Hat

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." -- from I Can Read with My Eyes Shut

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose." -- from Oh, the Places You'll Go!

and my favorite...

"A person's a person, no matter how small." -- from Horton Hears a Who

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Sneetches provided some of my greatest moments as an English teacher. Did you know that book is a fantastic starting point for a discussion of the Civil Rights era?

Love me some Dr. Seuss.

My son is learning about the Cold War in civics class right now. He was having a really hard time understanding how two countries could have a war where they weren't actually fighting, but were waiting around worried that they other country would attack them.
We pulled out The Butter Battle Book and, by the end, he got it.

Dr. Seuss was amazing!
