I'm pretty sure my childhood would have been absolutely terrible were it not for this man.
Don't you agree?
Dr. Seuss taught me ABCs, colors, numbers, vowel sounds, rhyme, to laugh and be silly, to stand up for what's right, to be brave, to be a thinker of great things, to be careful of what I wish for, to be my best me, to not put myself in a box, to be curious, to treat people fairly, to try new things, that my voice counts, and MANY many other valuable lessons.
His stories will forever be in my heart and in my home, passed down to my children and hopefully their children.
Thank you, Dr. Seuss, for living! Thank you for being the best you!
Happy 107th Birthday!
