February Author of the Month
February 4, 2019
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Who doesn’t have a personal story about learning to read with Dr. Seuss?
Green Eggs and Ham
Hop on Pop
How about Fox in Socks
These are just a few of the early reading selections that Dr. Seuss wrote and illustrated.
In addition, what would we do without the timeless tale of The Lorax and his ability to speak for the trees?
Or The Grinch who reminds us that maybe, just maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store and that maybe it means little bit more.
Horton makes sure we remember that a person's a person no matter how small in the story of Horton Hears a Who and Star Belly Sneetches warn us of the perils of exclusion.
Lastly, that naughty Cat in the Hat and his Thing One and Thing Two have been making children giggle for over 60 years.
We have yet to find a person (big or small) that doesn’t have a favorite Dr. Seuss story. Theodore Geisel aka Dr. Seuss, can be credited with writing and illustrating over 60 Childrens books during his lifelong career. In addition, he penned books under the name of Theo LeSieg which include In a People House and The Tooth Book. Dr. Seuss is such an important figure in Children’s literature that each year schools across the United States celebrate his birthday on March 2nd.
Please join us in celebrating this beloved Children’s Author by reading a Dr. Seuss or Theo LeSieg book with your child today.
