Dr. Seuss Day!

 
Today we celebrate 
Theodor Seuss Geisel's!
Or as we know him better as....

Dr. Seuss!


Today would have been his 108th birthday.
However, he passed away in 1991 at the age of 87.

But his work lives on and is enjoyed by many!
 
He was the creator of countless characters 
in his works of literature which included 
the Grinch, a bitter creature on a path 
to destroy Christmas and his 
most iconic character, "The Cat in a Hat"!
  
I love his books!


They  make me smile!

So today I hope you will
read one OR more of his 
books!

 


Enjoy them, my friends!
 
And may you have a Seuss filled 
weekend!

And you have any snow....

Enjoy that too!

Later -- Remington --
I am hungry....
Green eggs and Ham?
-- out!
not too sure about that....

Kelli said...

Dr. Seuss was a genius. :o) Had forgotten about it being his birthday ..heard it in my son's class this morning, but forgot by bedtime.. but guess what? We STILL read three Dr. Seuss stories. :o) He makes regular appearances at our bedtime story readings. :o) Have a fun snowy weekend! xo

Kathy said...

"I will not eat Green Eggs & Ham!"
Oh if I only had a dollar for every Cat in the Hat book I read, I'd be rich!
I loved reading them & my boys loved seeing me get tongue tied in the attempt!!
Have a happy weekend in the snow big guy!!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Wonderful tribute to Dr. Suess. Did you taste the green eggs and ham? We don't care about color, of course, just the smell and taste. We love eggs, but we never get ham.

We never read his books but the Christmas cartoon film with the green monster is fun! Forgotten the name though - hopefully it's not Alzheimer's.
