Children and children at heart owe a great deal to the legendary Theodor Seuss Geisel, whose iconic vision fueled imagination, learning and literacy. All through the amazing world of Dr. Seuss!
Below are some wittisms which I think you’ll agree make pretty powerful learning.
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
“Think and wonder, wonder and think.”
“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”
“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.”
“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”
“You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you are in.”
2 Ways to celebrate Dr Seuss Date on March 2nd?
1. Mobile Game
In tribute to Dr. Seuss and his classic “Happy Birthday to You!”, the newly minted Dr. Seuss Studios, a creation by Dr. Seuss Enterprises, will launch the first in a series of mobile games.
Come fly with B.B., the Birthday Bird, in B.B. Takes Flight. Tap and flap your way through colorful lands that take you to a Seussian world of wonder! Skillfully guide B.B. over, under, and through endless obstacles as you add up points to win coveted trophies and high-score bragging rights.
The game will be available next month for iOS and Android.
Sometimes the most obvious and important are easily forgot!
“Each year on Ted’s birthday, we celebrate the genius behind Dr. Seuss’s beloved characters and books,” said Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises.
“Although he is no longer with us, his legacy lives on in the pages of hundreds of Dr. Seuss books, and you can help to celebrate his birthday by taking a moment out of your day to read to a child.”
Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ favorite tips for reading with a child include:
- Pick a comfortable spot to read in – one with plenty of light.
- Make it a routine. Whether right before breakfast or just before bed, set aside a special time every day.
- Give lots of encouragement! Read the words aloud to your child, point to the pictures, say the words together. Laugh with your child!
- It’s never too early. Reading is a bonding activity for you and your new baby. Introduce reading in the very beginning, keep books in the nursery, and have books out for the baby to see!
