Growing up, I wasn’t a huge Dr. Seuss fan, not because I didn’t like him but because we were reading other books in my home. I was more of a Berenstain Bears and Ramona Quimby reader. Since being a mom, however, I’ve become hooked on Dr. Seuss, with his rhyming words and quirky, introspective writing. If you’ve never tried, it’s quite a challenge to rhyme like he does and conjure up that many nonsense words. I love the life lessons that unexpectedly pop out of his seemingly trivial tales. I also find the words of Dr. Seuss very inspirational. In honor of his birthday on Sunday, I want to share my favorite 16 quotes.
If you’re a teacher planning lessons or a parent planning a birthday party, I hope you enjoy these 13 quotes as much as I do. Dr. Seuss was a brilliant, compassionate writer and his words continue to resonate today. Enjoy!
