What I do not like about some of Dr. Seuss’ books is the repetition and the pages of just drawing and saying strange things. But what I love about some of his books are the positive messages and how clearly they are presented to children and adults alike. I am happy to have finally gotten to read his works, as I’ve never read them as a child but I am such a huge fan of the Dreamworks films versions. Dr. Seuss shares a lot of wisdom and I especially enjoyed Horton Hears A Who!, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (I think I teared up a little), Yertle the Turtle, and Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

I was very surprised by the ending of The Cat in the Hat, I thought that Happy Birthday To You! was a very adorable book, and, of course, I loved the messages in all of the others.

I will be reading more if not all of Dr. Seuss’ works this year.
