All About Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss and His Books

I love Dr. Seuss books.  I can still remember my mother reading "Are You My Mother" to me when I was 4 or 5 years old.  My mom wore a scarf on her head, over her curlers, so she reminded me of the mother bird in the story and my mom's maiden name is Bird.  (I think it's why she liked this book so much.)  My mother now has Alzheimer's and I have read it to her a few times, reminding her that she read it to me when I was a child.  I've also read this same book to my own children and students for years.  All I can say is Hip, Hip, Hooray for Dr. Seuss Day - Sunday, March 2 (National Read Across America Day) or (Dr. Seuss Day) 2014.
