Today we celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday when the boys and I pulled out a handful of the Dr. Seuss books to read. Some of our books are older because they are from Tim’s childhood collection. Some we picked up from library sales, and some have been bought or given to us a gifts. The boys adore Dr. Seuss books. They love making up words so it’s nice for them to see make believe words in a book.
Together we read If I Ran the Zoo, If I Ran the Circus, Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!, and Hop on Pop just to name a few. We talked about the style of writing and how a lot of the ending words rhymed with other words on the same page. Of course, that led to the boys making up their own words that rhymed with the ending word.
I saw this quote in my Twitter feed yesterday along with loads of other brilliant quotes from him.
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” ~Dr. Seuss
