Happy Birthday Dr. Suess!

Yesterday was Dr. Suess' birthday. I have always loved to read, ever since I was a little girl. That's probably why I became a teacher and I work in a library! In school, reading was the one thing that I was excellent at. Books are an escape if you just want to get away for a while. I have a poster that says "Books Fall Open, You Fall In" and that's so true. I started reading to Gracie the minute we got home from China and I haven't stopped. Gracie loves her books, especially the Dr. Seuss board books. Dr. Suess books have been so instrumental in getting children involved with reading that I again want to say Happy Birthday Dr. Suess and honor him by reading a book.

Gracie looks so cute with her book!

I remember celebrating Dr. Suess' birthday each year when I was teaching. That was one of my favorite things about teaching first grade...all those fun books! :-)

I totally forgot! We usually do the whole green eggs and ham thing and dress the kids up. We love books too. Gracie and Jerry reading together is a classic picture!
