Here’s to Dr. Seuss! His children’s books are timeless. I think most adults know his rhyming stories. My favorite is “Green Eggs and Ham”. Oh, that Sam-I-am! Thank you Dan over at No Facilities for this Dr. Seuss post and a tour of his museum. Play hard and read!

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    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.
