Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

March 2nd is National Read Across America Day and also Dr. Seuss’s birthday.  I absolutely love Dr. Seuss books.  They are always silly, zany and have crazy tongue twisters.  A cool fact for all you future authors out there, Dr. Seuss was turned down 28 times before Random House picked him up.  So don’t quit!!  

Here are a few quotes and one awesome tongue twister Dr. Seuss came up with! 

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

“I meant what I said and I said what I meant.”

“Today was good.   Today was fun.  Tomorrow is another one.”

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

“And then just to show them, I’ll sail to Ka-Troo And Bring Back an It-Kutch a Preep and a Proo a Nerkle a Nerd and a Seersucker, too!”  (My spell checker just went nuts over that one!)
