In honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday on March 2nd, I thought it would be fun to talk about your favorite books by him. My favorites are some classics as well. I love Green Eggs and Ham, and Oh, The Places That You'll Go. I'm sure that I will remember more during the course of the discussion! So happy birthday Sam-I-Am!

I forgot about How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss . How I love reading that to my kids during the Holidays, plus watching the show is great fun. Maybe I just have a soft spot for Boris Karloff!:)


message 7: by Robert (new)

Robert (rdowens) Today I read The Foot Book to my students. It is a favorite of mine.

P.S. I don't know how to link the book cover. :(

Robert, when you add your comment there is a link above the box that says add book/author, just click on that add it will link you to add covers. Just in case you wanted to know!!!

Robert (rdowens) Let's try this.

I read The Foot Book Dr. Seuss's Wacky Book of Opposites (Bright & Early Board Books(TM)) by Dr. Seuss today with my students.

Okay, that was easy enough. How did I ever miss that? Thanks, Lisa.

Happy birthday Dr. Seuss! Anybody going to see the new Lorax movie?


message 13: by Everyman (new)

Everyman | 153 comments My all time favorite was Bartholomew and the Oobleck, followed closely by If I Ran the Zoo, Scrambled Eggs Super, and To Think that I Saw it on Mulberry Street.

Like Everyman, I remember enjoying And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street by Dr. Seuss as a little girl. And I've used Bartholomew and the Oobleck by Dr. Seuss in the classroom and then had kids make their own Oobleck. So fun and messy! As a child however, I did find The Grinch scary and unappealing...I like it so much more as an adult. But my favorites as I stated last year are still The Lorax by Dr. Seuss and The Sneetches and Other Stories by Dr. Seuss . I am definitely looking forward to The Lorax movie.

Since this is such a fun topic, I'm bumping it back on top! Happy birthday Dr. Seuss! Hope that everyone makes some green eggs and ham for breakfast this week!


message 16: by Dustin (new)

Dustin | 111 comments Happy, Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!!:)


message 17: by Gary (new)

Gary Martin (gmmartinbooks) Dr. Seuss is a legend. I can see his books going on forever! I don't know if I can single out one book as a favorite. Green eggs and ham would certainly be close.

I was reading my kids some books today by Dr. Seuss and one of them was You're Only Old Once! by Dr. Seuss and I just started laughing. It is well worth reading this one if you are over the age of 25/30. It will make you chuckle. The dedication says it all-"With Affection and Affliction with the Members of the Class of 1925."


message 19: by Dustin (new)

Dustin | 111 comments Sounds great, Lisa! I'm sure your little ones enjoyed it, as well!:)

They enjoyed it, but they could not figure out why mom was laughing so hard at some of the parts.

Hehe, I'll bet!


message 22: by Gary (new)

Gary Martin (gmmartinbooks) Dr. Seuse's books are meant for children, but they still appeal to adults as well. Just don't tell anyone I said that.

Happy birthday again Dr. Seuss! I thought I would bring this back into circulation since we have new members.

Hi, Lisa! Just a few days ago I was voting on all the Dr. Seuss lists here on Goodreads and remembering so many of them fondly. Love the silliness! Browsing Dr. Suess book reviews is fun too.

Some favorites of mine: One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss
Hop On Pop Blue Back Book (Dr Seuss - Blue Back Book) (Dr. Seuss Blue Back Books) by Dr. Seuss
And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street by Dr. Seuss

Oh, and I think Dr. Seuss's ABC by Dr. Seuss is the best book ever for learning the alphabet.

They are such fun! My youngest son loves One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss . I love it when books span generations!

SheriC (PM) (shericpm) Sadly, some of the essential lessons Dr. Seuss teaches are still relevant to mature adults. My boss and I often joke about people who don't realize that the "stars upon thars" don't confer superiority. The Sneetches and Other Stories by Dr. Seuss


message 27: by Marcela (new)

Marcela I was reading Oh the Places You'll Go to my preschooler and found so much wisdom that can be applied (as an adult) when life gets challenging through the different seasons! I love that book!

I've heard that one read aloud to graduating high school seniors. Every one laughs, but we all recognize it as truth.
