Happy Birthday to the Master of Rhyme

Happy Birthday to Theodor Seuss Geisel. My heartfelt, grateful thanks for the side-eye looks of horror and confusion from volunteer readers that I bring into my PreK class and then unleash the good Doctor’s work on. Their disbelief that they have to learn what is essentially a new language on the fly in front of twenty five wiggly four-year-olds warms my heart on the coldest of days. I thank you, Dr. Seuss, and I read your books every year.
