    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.  ...

    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.

    "I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.

    Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities." (:
