Thank you for sharing, Jennie! I hope this evil discussion about him now is over. As sad it is, but each time in the past had its problems. Best wishes for a wonderful week. Michael
I hope so too, Michael! Best to you.
I didn’t know there was a Dr. Seuss Museum, nor did I realize how much there was to see and do in Springfield. I am putting it on my places to go list. Thanks for sharing Jennie.
I am too! Thanks, Carla.
I love that there is a Dr. Seuss Museum. It looks like so much fun.
I must visit this summer!
You had me at: “Play hard and read”
It felt good to type that. 🙂
That must have been a fun tour. Thanks for sharing, Jennie. I’m heading over to Dan’s. 😀
I think so, too! I love Dan’s blog. 🙂
I don’t think Dr.Seuss was such a big thing over here, but the museum looks well cool!
Isn’t it interesting how great authors can only be popular in their own country? The museum really does look cool! As a Dr. Seuss book lover for decades, I must visit the museum this summer.
Enjoy, and take pictures!
I will! 🙂
It was a super post by Dan. Thanks for the repost.
I’m glad you thought so, too!
I had no idea he had a museum , I’d love to visit
It’s new, built in 2017. I need to visit this summer.
I enjoyed my vicarious tour of the Dr. Seuss Museum!
I did, too. I so enjoy Dan’s blog.
This place looks wonderful!
It does. It’s fairly new. I must visit this summer.
Have a great visit, Jennie. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
Thank you, Pete.
I grew up on Dr. Seuss and other wonderful books. I loved Beverly Clearly books as well as Encyclopedia Brown, due to the detective aspect. I loved the time I grew up.
They are all great books, especially Beverly Cleary.
A perfect share, Jennie. It looks amazing.
It does. Thanks,Norah!
