Everything Dr. Seuss!!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss.  I must say he is one of my favorite children’s books authors, and person with the most quotable quotes.

Seusville is the official site for everything trademarked Dr. Seuss it is owned and operated by Random House Children’s Books.  Lots of cool stuff to explore in Seusville.

You can find some history of Dr. Seuss on Wikipedia.  You don’t have to travel very far to find quotes from all your favorite Dr. Seuss books.  I love spending time on this page trying to guess which book the quote comes from. Some of the quotes are more famous than the book that it is found in.

Want lesson plans for your favorite Dr. Seuss books, here are some great ones. Here are some more, and more.

The wealth of information out there is enormous, the problem I have is keeping it all in one week.  I plan the week out by the book.  I share the book then we do activities that are linked to the book.  So, however you plan to spend your week, share a few of your favorites with your kids.  Dr. Seuss is the man who made children’s literature what it is today!  So, go celebrate, I think our celebration is going to be in a box, with a fox, in a house with a mouse, or maybe in the rain on a train?

Don’t forget to stop and make a pledge for Read Across America.
