Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

It’s read Across America Day today in honor and celebration of the beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. Who hasn’t read and fallen in love with a Dr. Seuss book as a child or even as an adult?! His whimsical words paired with the illustrations of cats in hats, fishes flying and dogs driving. Today, Dr. Seuss would have turned 108 and I have a special place in my heart for him as he hails from my hometown of La Jolla, Calif. and before each of my children were born I bought them each an original Dr. Seuss illustration to hang in their nurseries. I hope that one day they’ll share the love his stories with their own children and hang those very same pictures in their room.

Today also marks the release of the movie, The Lorax, based on his book. To date their have been three other movies released based on Dr. Seuss books: How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Cat in the Hat, and Horton Hears a Who.
