Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

A resounding Happy, Happy Birthday to Theodor Seuss Geisel (1904-1991), more commonly known as Dr. Seuss!

To celebrate, Maya's school had the annual Stop, Drop, and Read and book parade this morning. Children dress as favorite book characters and parade through the halls while parents and grandparents watch. Then students read in their classrooms with their guests.

Seems like a fitting tribute for an author who left a lasting legacy for children.

I leave you with these important words from Dr. Seuss:

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

Be awesome! Be a book nut!

Happy Birthday to Dr Seuss! No wonder they were reading Dr Seuss stories at Target this past Saturday, I was just rushing and really paid not much attention. Good day!
Yes, that's the reason. And March 2 is pretty much a national celebration of children's books overall, too, with lots of schools and libraries having celebrations.

Pretty cool!
