For many years as a teacher, I celebrated his birthday (March 2nd) with a Dr. Seuss Day. We read all day, dressed up in the cat-in-the-hat’s red-and-white hat and just discussed the lessons to be learned from his stories. I know a lot of schools do this each year.
When I couldn’t be a teacher anymore, I brought this idea to my church where I volunteer twice a month with preschoolers. We have so much fun looking at all of the books I’ve accumulated. I post some of the best Dr. Seuss sayings around our little room.
I was going to just quote a few throughout my book, but then I decided they were worth a whole chapter. So – here are my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes. I’ve starred (*) the ones I’ve used as a teacher and/or church volunteer. Enjoy and THANK YOU, Dr. Seuss!
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
