Elephants hatching eggs, Who's too small to see, Sneetches with stars and Sneetches with none……………what on earth am I talking about? Maybe this will help: little Cindy Lou Who, a dog named Max, a mean old Grinch, and a cat in a hat. I bet you have it figured out now……….it’s Dr. Seuss! March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’s birthday and children of all ages (that means adults, too!) will be celebrating the wonderful characters he created.
My favorite Dr. Seuss characters are the Grinch and his dog Max, Horton the elephant, and the sneetches. I also love all the crazy rhyming words he makes up. Reading Dr. Seuss books makes me feel good because they are silly and remind me of my childhood. I also like his books because there is a moral to most of the stories. That means they teach an important life lesson.
There is more to know about Dr. Seuss. Check out the website and then come back and tell me something about Dr. Seuss that you didn’t know before!
What are your favorite Dr. Seuss characters and stories? Why are they your favorites? What lesson is being taught in one of your favorite stories?
