Unforgettable Dr. Seuss Quotes

It is almost time to celebrate the birthday of the famous children’s author, Dr Seuss.  He was a writer, poet and cartoonist, among other things, in America that wrote funny, zany children’s books.   His real name was Theodor Seuss Griesel and was born on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts.

What makes this year remarkable is that twenty years after his death, there will be a new Dr Seuss book released in July 2015 called “What Pet Should I Get?”  

My little monkeys love Dr Seuss.  It is the books that we use as reading practice.  I can recite Green Eggs and Ham by heart, because I’ve read it so many times for my children as a bedtime story.  When they were old enough to start reading English, it was always their favourite book to read to me.  The rhyming words make it an easy first book to read in a second language and my little ones love the funny made-up words.

There are so many life lessons in the Dr. Seuss books.  I’m sharing just a few that spoke to my heart.

From The Lorax

This wonderful book encourages young readers to care for the environment and was one of my son’s favourites when he was little.

    I love this. Target recently had all Dr. Seuss books on sale for $5 so we stockpiled on several of them for our almost-6-year old who is currently in Kindergarten and is learning to read. She takes remarkably good care of her things for a kid her age, so I am confident those books will be in almost-mint condition when my baby is older and is also learning how to read. :) Dr. Seuss is the best! I love the bookmarks, too, that is so great!

      Hi Emily
      Thanks for stopping by. My kids have all the Dr. Seuss books. I bought them for my teenager 16 years ago and the youngest is now starting to read them.

    LOOOOVE Dr Seuss!!! You have only been blogging 5 months, and you already figured out blog hops, Amazon ads, wordpress, and having your own .com. You are way ahead of where I was at 5 months. I’m just going to hide behind my “Well, I was giving birth to my 4th baby when I started public blogging” excuse, (excuses, excuses) as I tell you, that you are a rocket. Great job. :)

    We love Dr. Seuss around here too. I too can paraphrase word for word ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ (because it is a favorite around here), and ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ as well. My favorite, however is ‘Oh the Places You Will Go’. There are just so many fantastic quotes you can take from that book!
