He was born Theodor Seuss Geisel on this day in 1902. He left this earth 26 years ago but how his work lives on in the books he wrote. He was a great writer and his works live on in books conveyed through movies and tv shows that we have enjoyed and our children too now enjoy.
Of course we had to celebrate. We went to the library, checked out a few books and took a few pictures to a wonderful Cat in the Hat theme provided by our local library. The kids also completed the craft pictured here. The library provided the simple craft with paper plate, red and black construction paper cut in the shape of bows, nose, whiskers and stripes to his hat. This is a great idea for you to share with your little ones.
My favorite book was One Fish Two fish Red Fish Blue Fish but my son loves the show based on The Cat in the Hat and reading Green Eggs and Ham. I found Green Eggs and Ham very annoying as a child but now I kind of like its quirkiness. I love many of Dr Seuss’ quotes and just his unique style. He cannot be copied. Happy Birthday to him and go out and enjoy a book of his in his honor.
