    Obsessive a Bit Much...

    I used to absolutely love him (still do) but when my sister was really young she was obsessed with the book 'One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish,' (and still is). I seriously believe that I spent more time reading that book to her than I did at school. It wa ridiculous how...

    So Much Good To Say

    It isn't just the odd humor that lifts Seuss above other children's authors. And it isn't the rhymes that make it so easy to read. There's something else, intangible about Dr Seuss... My friend's mother suffer's from Alzheimer's. Her mother loves having Dr Seuss read to her.

    Dr. Seuss Classroom

    Dr. Seuss is actually the theme I am using in my classroom this year! I love his books and think they are wonderfully fun and zany for kids. My favorite quotes are: The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.  ...

    Green Eggs And Ham... Sam I Am
