We LOVE Dr. Seuss in our house! We love the rhymes, the silliness, and the oddness of it all. We started collecting books when we first learned I was expecting with our Honey-girl. Now, at age 6 she shares my love for the tongue twisting fun that each story brings. Along with all the words that make a perfect amount of no sense at all.
Today, on March 2nd, the country celebrates the delightful stories Dr. Seuss has left us. What other way can you celebrate this great author than to read! And another great reason to bring you one of our favorite things… DR. SEUSS BOOKS!
Which is why today has been dubbed National Read Across America Day.
So I asked Honey Girl what her favorite Dr. Seuss book was and this is what she had to say…
CJ: What’s your favorite Dr. Seuss book? And Why?
HG: I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! I like reading words. I like when his eyebrows turn bright red. It’s just so funny!
CJ: What’s your favorite part?
HG: When he says “Mississippi, Indiana, and Hallelujah too!”
CJ: Do you think you could read with your eyes shut?
HG: *laughs* No! Unless… I memorize it!
It’s so fun to watch her love for reading grow!
E-Man’s love for a good book seems to grow everyday as well. He has his favorite books he goes for, one of which is Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? He loves making all the sounds Mr Brown makes. They aren’t your average sounds you find in a book. You know the ones, what does a cat say? What does a dog say? Instead we make horse feet sounds, thunder sounds, and lightning (and it’s really really hard to make a sound like that)! A close 2nd for E-Man would be Are You My Mother? This one follows a little bird on a journey to find his mother after he hatches while she was gone. (We also have this one in Spanish! It’s as fun in Spanish as it is in English!)
It’s hard for me to pick just one Dr. Seuss book, I think I’d have to go with Oh, Say Can You Say… What can I say it’s just so much fun to read!
