Dr. Seuss

Special Storytime Party

We are having a storytime party, but for whom? 

Everyone is sure to have Seussational time as we celebrate the life and work of a man with many names. Of whom am I speaking? The beloved children's author Theodor Seuss Geisel, of course. You've never heard of him? Well, that is because he went by several nom de plumes. He wrote one book, Because a Little Bug Went Ka-choo!, as Rosetta Stone. He also wrote several early readers as Theo LeSieg, but you probably know him as the one and only Dr. Seuss!

What You Might Not Know About Dr. Seuss

Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts: Poetry for Children

Photo Credit: Duncecap from reproducinggenius.comI am only writing this post because a couple of weeks ago I more or less prostrated myself soliciting topic suggestions, so I feel obligated...obligated and bitter.

I want to make one thing perfectly clear: I do not condone inflicting poetry upon innocent and impressionable minds. Read your kids books on Java Script, or marketing, or advanced particle physics, anything but poetry. It will only lead them to lives of frustration and heartache--not to mention insanely expensive and useless liberal arts degrees.

Human language ranks even above the much-vaunted opposable thumb in my book. Sure, thumbs came in handy for our ancestors when it came to throwing spears at bison and such, but I think we can all agee that it was when humans developed the ability to order a mastodon sirloin rare with a side of sloth that things really started to take off progress-wise.

Dr. Seuss

 

On March 2nd, Read Across America day will celebrate the life and works of the beloved author, Dr. Seuss.

As Kathleen's blog announced, celebrations will be held at all Harris County Public Libraries throughout the week.  

I thought that it would be fun to list some of my favorite biographies on Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel). His life was just as amazing as his books.
