Happy Birthday, Dr. Suess!

The new movie, The Lorax, is being released on Friday, March 2nd. This Friday also happens to be Dr. Suess’ 108th birthday.  He’s not actually alive but I would argue that his stories and gift for rhyme live on. I’m certain the movie is going to be wonderful; it looks HILARIOUS!  If you haven’t already explored Dr. Suess with your children, there is a lot to enjoy; sophisticated rhythm and rhyme, profound yet accessible concepts and engaging artwork.  Theodor Seuss Geisel was not a perfect man, but he left us something inspiring.  I am grateful to him for reminding me that being silly is not silly at all.  It can be motivating, rejuvenating and essential to a healthy life.  It endears us to our children.

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.  Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”
― Dr. Seuss

Happy Birthday to you!
