Can you even begin to imagine a world without Dr. Seuss books? Some of my first memories of reading and being read to are The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. Well today is Dr. Seuss’ birthday, he would have been 110! I wanted to share with you some of my favorite books and some activities that you could do to celebrate his birthday!
What a smart man. His books are all so wonderful, the messages so important, tt is hard to narrow down which of Dr. Seuss’ books are my most favorite.
The Cat in the Hat | Green Eggs and Ham | Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish (I Can Read It All by Myself) | The Lorax (Classic Seuss) | Horton Hears A Who!
If I Ran the Zoo (Classic Seuss) | My Book About Me | What Pet Should I Get? (Classic Seuss)
Recently, it was announced that Random House would be publishing a manuscript that had been recovered in 2013. This book, What Pet Should I Get?, will be released in late July of this year. I am so excited to see this book.
I’ve spent some time browsing Pinterest, checking out some really fun and super cute activities to do with the petites. However, I find that on days like Dr. Seuss’ birthday, I really miss being in the classroom. Check out my Pinterest board.
Okay, now for the real question; which Dr. Seuess Book is your favorite?
One thought on “Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss”
When I was young, apparently my favorite was Put Me in the Zoo (not sure what that says about me). However, as I have “aged” I love looking for the messages in his books – and helping my upper elementary students analyze these books for that second layer of theme and lesson. That being said, I love love love The Butter Battle Book (conflict, escalation, technology) and The Sneetches (kindness, exclusion/inclusion, physical differences, and even some economics). Oh and around testing season, you can’t miss with Horray for Diffendoofer Day – Jack Prelutsky and Lane Smith finishing a work started by Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss). Truly, I aspire to be a little like Miss Bonkers!
