Words of Dr Suess

Children's Book Week, in my mind, requires that I pay homage to a children's author.  One of my favourite children's authors is Dr Seuss.  This man has a gift when it comes to words.  He knew how to rhyme them, weave them and even create them.  The good “Word Dr” has a sophisticated knowledge of language which allows him to say it simply.  When children open a Dr Seuss book, they open the door to a world of wonder, thought provoking tales and a whole lot of fun.  When an adult opens a Dr Seuss book, it is my hope that they are transported back to a happy part of their childhood of rhymes and learning and squeals of laughter and delight.
Happy Reading! 

His words may seem silly, but they really are wise.  So sit back and remember, and don’t criticise (links for sources and more info are at the bottom of this post).

Dr Seuss for Kids

“I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.” 
 Dr. Seuss, The Cat in the Hat

“All those Nupboards in the Cupboards they're good fun to have about. But that Nooth gush on my tooth brush.....Him I could do without.” 
Dr. Seuss, There's a Wocket in My Pocket!

Dr Seuss for Everyone

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not.” 
 Dr. Seuss, The Lorax  
“And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!” 
Dr. Seuss

“For a host, above all, must be kind to his guests.” 
Dr. Seuss, Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose

“You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.” 
 Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!
