Krystyna,

Thanks buckets!!

Do you know that I never heard about your Dc. Seuss before?

I knew that English speaking kids learned (sorry for the spelling Smile ) nice stories like these but I didn't know about the name:
What child doesn't grow up having memorized Dr Seuss quotes? His words are so lyrical and rhythmical, it's nearly impossible not to remember them.

I'm getting such quotes by Ali and her friends sometimes on FB...

Hi everyone,
"I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful, one hundred percent."

Quick--who said that? Why, it was Horton, of course. Seuss's caring elephant is just one of his many wonderful characters.

The people and animals in books by Dr Seuss serve as models of caring, frivolity, and dedication. They teach us important life lessons that stay with us long after we've grown out of childhood.

One favorite character continues to be the Grinch, and perhaps one of the best quotes from Dr Seuss comes from How the Grinch Stole Christmas: "And what happened then? Well, in Whoville they say that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day." The triumph of goodness over evil, told in a way only Dr Seuss could tell it.

Aren't Dr Seuss quotes great? Sometimes inspirational, sometimes insightful, always fun. If your interest is piqued... oh the places you'll go with our...





Theodor Seuss Geisel (2 March 1904 – 24 September 1991), better known by his pen name, Dr. Seuss, was a famous American writer and cartoonist best known for his children's books.

The two most famous books of Dr Seuss are
The Cat in the Hat, and Green Eggs and Ham

Both use plenty of rhyming words, and don't make a lot of sense at times !

Here is something from Green Eggs and Ham ...

Do you like green eggs and ham?

I do not like them, Sam-I-am
I do not like green eggs and ham!
Would you like them here or there?

I would not like them here or there
I would not like them anywhere

I do so like green eggs and ham!
Thank you! Thank you, Sam-I-am!
