Hey Kid: Dr. Seuss
I love to read and I've read all kinds of books in my lifetime. I have some favorites, but none of them surpass my passion and love of Dr. Seuss. When it comes to writing as well as in life, the man was a genius. (We share the same birthday, March 2nd. What a coincidence!)
"A person's a person, no matter how small."
Now you may be thinking that it's silly to have Dr. Seuss as my favorite author... You might think it's silly and juvenile. Well, you would be right. That's the best thing about his writing. His poetry is brilliant and the stories are most memorable. They are simple and deep all at the same time.
"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. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."
We'll read a lot of books together and you can be sure that we'll start with Dr. Seuss. There are so many good stories it will keep us busy for a while. And when we're done, we'll start all over again. It won't take long before you'll be reading them to me.
