You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.
~ Dr. Seuss ~
Read Across America week, appropriately kicks off today, on Theodor Geisel’s birthday.

Here’s to the doctor!
Good reblog, Jennie. I already left a comment on Kim’s post. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
Thank you, Pete. Kim’s post was terrific!
Thanks so much for reblogging Jennie!🤗
My pleasure, Kim! 😀
I love the good Doc!!!
He was well ahead of his time. I dearly wish I’d grown up learning to read with his books instead of Dick and Jane. I would have been a real reader instead of a struggling reader.
It’s interesting to find “One Hundred Dresses” on the diversity list. I read that as a child and of course have no memory of why it is on the list. Do you know?
I have no idea. That’s very interesting.
Terrific reblog, Jennie
Thank you, John.
Dr. Seuss, hooray! Your legacy lives on.
Three Cheers! The Good Doctor rocks… 🙂 Great post.
He really does! Thank you, Bette. 🙂
Jennie, thank you so much!
You are welcome, Charles.
Commenting on Wednesday – the day to wear wacky socks…I’m a crazy sock lover from way back so this is a great excuse to wear my wackiest!
Yes it is! Today I wore my Starry Night socks. They’re actually deeply personal and important to me, but still whacky. 🙂
Great! I first time heared about Dr. Seuss, by you Jennie! A wonderful man, with a lot of fantastic ideas. Thank you for reposting. Michael
He was one of the great ones. Thank you, Michael!
So true, Jennie! Thank you for bringing him to my knowledge. I will spread the word, because sometimes here in Germany the need to accept high quality pre-schooling too. Michael
I hear you loud and clear, Michael. Sometimes the high quality can come in simple, common sense ways – like reading aloud good books.
:-)) So true, Jennie!
