Oh, the places you’ve been, Dr. Seuss. The world is celebrating 106 years of fabulous you and it makes me smile inside to realize how many lives you’ve changed. The way you string words together is as magical as a cat who can make messes disappear…just like that (The Cat in the Hat). You create characters that we can’t help adore, even green monster types out to steal our holidays with hearts smaller than the size of a pea (The Grinch Who Stole Christmas). And you teach us lessons that will get us through life smarter, smiling each step of the way. We all cut our teeth learning to read with your books (Green Eggs and Ham anyone?), while also learning to count (One Fish, Two Fish) and accepting that it’s not just ok, but good, to be different! Thanks Dr. Seuss! I’ll celebrate you any day!
