Green Eggs and Ham
taught us to try things we don’t think we will like: “try them, and you may, I say.”


Dr. Seuss also warned us to beware of strange cats in hats who want us to keep secrets from our mother.

Dr. Seuss definitely inspired us with “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”



And who can forget Horton’s heroic reminder that “a person is a person no matter how small”?

March 2, 1904 was Theodor Seuss “Ted” Geisel’s birthday.  He would be 115 this year.  We don’t need a further excuse to have a party, right?  Just please, don’t put 115 candles on the cake.  We don’t want to set off any fire alarms!

Roundup of fantastic Dr. Seuss resources, party, and activity ideas

“From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere.”

First, a side note: do you know how to form the possessive of Dr. Seuss? “Seuss’s” is silly sounding enough to fit into one of his stories.  I always second-guess myself with possessives.  Thankfully there were plenty of grammar resources online.

But back to the Dr. Seuss party planning…

If you don’t want to make your own, there are reams of fantastic Dr. Seuss Birthday Supplies available.  I like to rock a Seuss book cover t-shirt in his honor during morning time.

Amy Sloan and her husband, John, are second-generation homeschoolers by grace alone to 5 children ages 4, 7, 9, 12, and 14. Their educational philosophy is one of humility and doxology, and follows primarily a classical approach. Amy loves coffee, and starts getting nervous if the stack of to-be-read library books beside her bed is less than 2 feet tall. Get her started on Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Homer, or Hamilton the Musical and it might be hard to get her to stop. Mostly, though, she gets really excited about the Gospel.
