"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Today is Dr. Seuss' birthday!! He was born March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts. If you are ever in Springfield, you can visit the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Gardens.


The best thing you can do to celebrate Dr. Seuss'  birthday is to read a book with a child in your life. School children all across America participate in "Read Across America". The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, Read Across America. Now in its thirteenth year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.

So, Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! I know I love all the funny books that you wrote during your life time! And today we share these books with the children we love. We read to them and (even better) they read their favorite books to US!

" TV.  If kids are entertained by two letters, imagine the fun they'll have with twenty-six.  Open your child's imagination.  Open a book."  ~Author Unknown


  1. A good friend of mine, and fellow quilter, shares her birthday with Dr. Seuss. He was a very talented man!

  2. What a lovely post, Sheila. Thanks for reminding me. I think one of my loveliest memories of when my son was very little will be reading him The Cat in the Hat. The fish was my favorite.

  3. I just wanted to let you know how much I love your blog!! You always talk about such interesting things! Thanks!♥

  4. I have my own desktop tribute Cat in the Hat sitting on my desk. (He may have been a fast food toy?) A wonderful source of creative inspiration.


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. You made my day!
