Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!

Doctor Seuss has given us so many reasons to want to read!  His books have been a classic for years with their unique style and fun illustrations (plus it's so entertaining to get your tongue tied while trying to read the words!!)  I love any other that makes reading fun and encourages children (and parents) to open a book! 

Reading instead of watching t.v increases a child's vocabulary and stimulates their mind. 

If you have a child who is in grade school, they probably read Doctor Seuss books in school today in celebration of his birthday. Why not join in the fun by checking out this cool website  or asking your child some fun questions such as....

What's your favorite Doctor Seuss book?
Why do you think Doctor Seuss is one of the most famous authors?
I wonder how Dr. Seuss came up with all those crazy characters?"
Why does the cat in the hat wear that crazy bow tie?
How many Doctor Seuss books can you name?

Finally, here is one of my favorite Doctor Seuss quotes.....
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind."
