In Honor of Dr. Seuss, Who Would Be 108 Years Old Today

March 2nd, 2012 (12:14 am)

current mood: nostalgic

All the Whos down in Who-ville adore Dr. Seuss,
For his birthday they'll serve you some beezelnut juice.
And then they'll do something he'd like most of all
Every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small
Will swallow their schlopp and then rush to their book,
And they'll READ, READ, READ, READ from the book that they took.
And the most enterprising will read to a kid,
(Or if they choose not to, they'll say that they did.)

If you'd like to join them, I say that you may,
When they celebrate Theodor's birth on this day.
With the Whos, and the Lorax, the Grinch, and the Sneetches.
And all of the students and all of their teachas.
And that over-tall cat who is always in style,
With his red and white hat and his all-knowing smile.
So whether it's raining or whether it's sunny,
We all can have lots of good fun that is funny.

We'll have fun with books on this Friday, March 2.
Your mother will not mind at all if you do.

Happy Read Across America Day!
