Dr. Seuss published more than 60 children’s books, filled with silly tales of grinches, turtles named Yertle and cats wearing hats. To celebrate his life and the impact he made on children (and adults) everywhere, the National Education Association created the annual Read Across America event, a reading motivation and awareness program. At many schools and libraries, guests from the community come in to share their favorite stories. This year, some lucky kids were able to hear First Lady Michelle Obama read The Cat in the Hat at the Library of Congress. I personally would have chosen Green Eggs and Ham, which is strange considering I’m not really a fan of eggs, ham or the color green. I’m just able to transcend all that and enjoy the tale.
So, Shelf Life readers, what’s your favorite Dr. Seuss book? One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish? The Lorax? And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street?
