Happy 103rd Birthday, Theodor Seuss Geisel

. at . 2 comments

I grew up on the the Dick, Jane and Spot readers. I remember this one about Jane getting 3 dollies for her birthday. Bleh!

I didn’t want dollies. I wanted adventures, dirt, improper behaviour.  Thankfully Dr. Seuss delivered: selfish Yertles, yacky cats, sneaky grinches and grinchy sneetches.

See here for a bunch of Dr. Seuss activities and links. See here for info about Dr. Seuss. It’s an interesting read. It appears that he typically wrote one book a year!

Sorry the day is over. Probably none of you are going to go rush to wake your babies to partake of these fun ideas now. Oh well, they’ll still be fun even if it isn’t his birthday.

Quiz – Which of the following books were written in my birth year?

  1. Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories
  2. The Cat in the Hat Comes Back
  3. Green Eggs and Ham

Numbers 1 and 2.  These also happen to be my favorite books. What’s your fav Dr. Seuss book? Why?

So happy belated birthday, March 2nd,  to one of my favorite childhood authors.

    Hee hee! Here’s to “adventures, dirt, improper behaviour”! Fantastic! My favorite… there are too many to pick. I did kind of like the one about running the circus (the Circus McGurkus – heh heh) and “to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street.” Fun!
