We had a special time counting and placing goldfish on the placemat (link in picture) on Thursday and then on Saturday, we put a Dr. Seuss diaper on the toddler, went to the library and celebrated with crafts, coloring pages, stories, treats, and a special visit from a Dr. Seuss character! Keeley really was not all that thrilled at Thing 1’s antics, but she did get over it. We brought home some special Dr. Seuss books and movies to learn from, too! We spent the rest of the evening enjoying all things Seuss!
I love seeing kids celebrate Dr. Seuss week! When I went in for centers today for Lauren, we got to read a Dr. Seuss book and do “book reports.” Much more fun than our usual activity! What’s your favorite Seuss story? There are so many good ones. The Lorax has been a favorite of ours for years. Fox in Socks is the most fun to read. I love the Tweedle Beatle part. Green Eggs and Ham always had a good message for Lauren. The Butter Battle Book really makes you think. Of course there is the Grinch. They liked to act that one out at Christmas. I didn’t have any Dr. Seuss books growing up, and Mindy only had One Fish Two Fish, Are you my Mother?, The Cat in the Hat, and In a People House. What a world Mark introduced me to! There are kids in Lauren’s class who can’t rhyme. I asked one if her mom ever read Dr. Seuss to her. She looked clueless, so I named off a few of the most popular books. Got nothing. I’m floored. Anyone who reads these to their kids really provides them with a great language background plus good messages. So who wouldn’t want to do that, you know?
And that is perhaps the cutest cushy bum I’ve seen 🙂
