"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you." -Dr. Seuss
It's Read Across America Day! Working in an elementary setting, we take today to honor the birthday of our beloved Dr. Seuss. As I walked from classroom to classroom this morning, you could see how this man has left a timeless impact on all of our hearts regardless of age. I sat alongside some students as they listened to a Dr. Seuss favorite and was immediately drawn to the familiar text. The celebration of reading is evident and another level of excitement fills the air within our school community.
I'm sure many of us can attest to growing up alongside some of Dr. Seuss's classics that are still thriving on bookshelves today. Do you have a favorite? His words, while fun to read, often provide deeper meaning and messages to pass along way. Who else can get away with making up silly, rhyming words, and send a message to the reader at the same time?! His genius was instilling a love of reading within us all that won't soon be forgotten.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND THANK YOU, DR. SEUSS!
