Last Friday, for Read Across America Day, I read to my sister's fourth grade class and to my nephew's third grade class. I love going into the elementary school and seeing the kids and miss when I used to volunteer at the school library for my kids and read to them and their classmates.Read Across America Day is an observance in the US held on the school day closest to Dr. Suess's birthday.
We had quite a few books by Dr. Suess at our house when I was a kid. Here are some of my favorites:
Dr. Suess's Sleep Book
Yertle the Turtle
And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street
Some more recent favorites are:
Daisy Head Mayzie
Oh, the Places You'll Go!
That last one is especially meaningful as my older daughter prepares to graduate high school in three short months :-)
Did you read Dr. Suess books when you were growing up? Did you read them to your kids? Which are your favorites?
