Happy Birthday Dr Seuss

The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house all that cold, cold, wet day. I sat there with Sally. We sat there, we two. We sat and we wished we had something to do. But all we could do was to sit sit sit sit. No we did not like it. Not one little bit. Too cold to go out. Too wet to play ball. So we sat in the house and did nothing at all. Then something went BUMP. How that BUMP made us jump....We looked and we saw him step in on the mat. We looked and we saw him....

Theodor Geisel's words take a fair bit of my own personal hard drive. If he was alive he would be 101 years old today. How many of us were first turned onto poetry by Green Eggs and Ham? or Hop on Pop? The kids don't ask me to read Seuss to them anymore, but we've kept his books on our shelf. He is good stuff. Happy birthday Dr. Seuss!

Question: Would you eat them in a tree?
