Happy B-Day Dr. Seuss

Today in 1904 Theodor Seuss Geisel was born. My how time flies…

My favorite Seuss book has always been ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas!. I just love the Grinch and his little dog Max. Little known fact about me, when I moved home after living in Honduras I made it my goal to read every Dr. Seuss book out there.  I had read quite a few in Honduras (I worked in a 1-12 grade school Library so we had plenty of kids books) and then tracked down the rest of his books, including some of the older adult ones he had written.

A few of my favorite Seuss quotes:

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

“I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.”

Is it me or do many Seuss lines sound like they are from Lord of the Rings or Dr. Who?

This is the funnies reading of ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ I have ever seen! Its a really bad video off of YouTube, but if you have never seen the Rev Jesse Jackson reading ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ from SNL you dont know what you are missing.
