Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

It's the birthday of Theodor Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss, 1904-1991). Our family loves Dr. Seuss books and I've enjoyed reviewing a number of them over the years. So in honor of the day, I thought I'd post a few links.

One of our very favorites is There's a Wocket in my Pocket. When the sweet girl was little, she once informed me, after changing into her pajamas, that the wocket was now in the clothes hamper!

Dr. Seuss also wrote one of the most unique ABC books ever. And even the tried and true bedtime book gets his highly creative touch in The Sleep Book.

I love the fact that Dr. Seuss can use his imagination to pay tribute to...imagination! Oh, The Thinks You Can Think! is one of my very favorite Seuss titles.

And I still retain a great fondness for Hop on Pop, one of the first books our daughter ever read on her own when she was nearing the grand age of five. I have days when I really miss our sojourn in three-letter word land.

Hooray for Dr. Seuss! So many creative books. I wonder if there are any of his that I haven't read yet? It wouldn't surprise me if there were a couple that sneaked past my radar...

Isn't he truly wonderful? It's so much fun to see his books pop up in all sorts of places this time of year. I'm glad his birthday celebration is cause for so many efforts to support a reading life for kids. (Now if we could just get Congress on board....aaarrrgh.)
