I Love Dr. Seuss

I loved Dr. Seuss as a kid, and now I love reading those same books to my boys. Logan is at the age where he loves "The Foot Book" and "Dr. Seuss's ABC's." Ethan loves the longer Dr. Seuss books like "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish." This year, he is loving "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." too. We've read the book and watched the movie several times already. That Dr. Seuss is brilliant. I just love the rhymes and the whimsical words he uses. He tells seriously good stories but doesn't take them too seriously. You know what I mean? He plays with words in such a wonderful, imaginative way. And I have a fondness for him since I played The Cat in the Hat in a skit for Odyssey of the Mind when I was in 5th grade.

Here's a bit of those brilliant "lyrics" from his Grinchy story about Christmas:

Love this! I'm having a book swap party next week and was going to use How the Grinch Stole Christmas as a theme, so this is perfect!

I'm pretty sure that Dr. Seuss was a gifted man (literally). We almost bought The Grinch at Target last night. We have some of the shorter books for Owen, too. I also like how many of Dr. Seuss's books are written with messages for adults (Oh, The Places You'll Go and The Lorax are my faves).

Thanks so much for sharing this, I found it on Pintrest. I printed it off as a 16x20 and it works smashingly! Thanks again!
