Your Favorite Seuss: A Baker's Dozen By The One And Only Dr. Seuss, compiled by Janet Schulman & Cathy Goldsmith



I picked this book up about two years ago and have slowly gotten through it; reading some to the boys and savoring some for myself. A thoughtful collection of Seuss masterpieces with personal reflections by others whom Seuss influenced in the craft of writing and living. The 13 stories included here:

And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street
McElligot's Pool
If I Ran The Zoo
Horton Hears A Who!
The Cat In The Hat
How The Grinch Stole Christmas!
Yertle The Turtle
Happy Birthday To You!
Green Eggs And Ham
The Sneetches
Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book
The Lorax
Oh, The Places You'll Go!

A few words of Seuss wisdom:
"Think and wonder, wonder and think."

"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you."

"Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one."

And of course : I LIKE NONSENSE, IT WAKES UP THE BRAIN CELLS. FANTASY IS A NECESSARY INGREDIENT IN LIVING, IT'S A WAY OF LOOKING AT LIFE.

Great!!!!
