Happy, Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
What a special day. Today marks his 106th birthday and children of all ages are so happy to celebrate his special day.
We can all recite various lines from Green Eggs and Ham or One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.
Mini #1 is having a Dr. Seuss extravaganza at school today. They are dressing in red, white, and black, and getting to taste green eggs and ham. Each student is bringing in his/her favorite Dr. Seuss book and I cut out Dr. Seuss hat cut-outs for them to decorate to make their own hats. How cute they all will be!
I had a few extra so my minis made one at home yesterday so Mini #2 could get in on the fun too. Aren't they so cute?!?!
(Mini #2 was so darn tickled by the whole thing that she was just laughing away and it kept making her hat fall back. Her laugh reall is contagious...just look at that face. And yes, that is indeed black marker on her nose and on her shirt.)
Here are a few favorite Dr. Seuss quotes:
"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere."
"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you."
"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."
"And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed. "
"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose. "
THANK YOU Dr. Seuss for being you, getting children excited to read, and for providing us with a lifetime of fun, funny, insightful, and educational quotes. Grab a Dr. Seuss book today and get lost in that magical and zany world.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Dr. Seuss!
