You’re never too old

Today is Read Across America Day, a time set aside to celebrate children’s author, Dr. Seuss, and to encourage everyone to read with a child.  Theodore Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904, and began his career as an author with the publication of And to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street in 1937.

I grew up reading Dr. Seuss books, I read them to my own children, and I’ll be reading them with my grandchildren. I think my favorite is The Sneetches, a story about racial equality that teaches us that it really doesn’t matter who has “stars upon thars.”

What about you? Reply and share your favorite Dr. Seuss story. And remember, as Theodore Seuss Geisel pointed out, “You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child.”
