Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
February 23, 2011
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." Dr. Seuss
There’s just something special about Dr. Seuss books. Could it be the way he rhymes? What about his witty, humorous sentences? Or, the easily recognizable drawings that take us into an imaginative world? If you’re like me, you’ve read many of his titles over and over again. Did you learn to read Green Eggs and Ham all by yourself? Or, read aloud the tongue-twister Fox in Socks? Did you realize that The Butter Battle Book is a commentary on the Cold War?
In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday March 2, we are voting on our favorite Dr. Seuss book! I know that if you’re like me, it’s hard to pick just one! I have so many favorites like Green Eggs and Ham, Oh The Places You’ll Go and One Fish, Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.
How can you cast your vote? Just visit our branch and check out the Dr. Seuss display in the children’s area. If you need to read a few of his books before you vote, we’ve got some displayed for you to check out. To vote, simply mark your favorite book on the voting sheet and put it into Dr. Seuss’ hat. I will display the most favorite books at the library on his birthday, March 2 (and for a little while after that).
Happy reading and happy birthday Dr. Seuss!
"You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!"
