Celebrating Seuss

“You can find magic
wherever you look.
Sit back and relax,
all you need is a book.”

― Dr. Seuss

“When you think things are bad,
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad...
you should do what I do!
Just tell yourself, Duckie,
you're really quite lucky!
Some people are much more...
oh, ever so much more...
oh, muchly much-much more
unlucky than you!”

― Dr. Seuss, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?

Tomorrow, March 2, marks what would have been Dr. Seuss' 109th birthday. Bubby's class celebrated all things Seuss this week, topped off by a day of dress-up and green eggs and ham.

Dr. Seuss celebration

Bubby posed with his teacher, whom he loves and adores, then ate (or pretended to eat) the obligatory green eggs. Bubby's not a fan of eggs in general, and I'm not so sure even the prospect of them being green — his favorite color — made him change his mind.

(Food for thought: In the photo above that Megan texted me, the eggs don't seem to me to be all that green. When my girls were little, green eggs for our annual green-eggs-and-ham breakfast — on St. Patrick's Day because that's the way we rolled — were pretty much a Technicolor affair ... and scrambled. Go figure.)

In honor of Dr. Seuss, March 2 was designated a while back by the National Education Association and Random House as the official Read Across America Day. If you're looking for celebration ideas (and printables for some special fun), head on over to Seussville.

“You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!”

― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!
