Musings On The Holidays by Dr. Suess: What If?

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling; how could it be so?

  1. Good wishes for the holidays right back at you, Stephanie. Great words from Dr. Seuss. Tonight, I read silently a few pages from Dr. Seuss's first children's book: And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street. I was not familiar with this book, but found it in my 8-year old grandson's house. Dr. Seuss was certainly a very talented original.

  2. MikeB- I think Dr. Suess is highly under-rated, most likely becaue he is associated with children's 'nonsense' books... but one shouldn't be fooled by his silliness; he was a brilliant man and a very wise soul!
    You might enjoy looking up a book he wrote for adults: 'You're Only Old Once!"

  3. I am not sure if Dr. Suess is highly under-rated. His books still sell. And they ARE great. And, yes, he was brilliant.

  4. MikeB- His books still sell, true, as children's works,mostly though. Meant that he is under-rated as a read for adults! Within the rhyming rhythms are messages of love, loyalty, appreciation, friendship, trustworthiness, honesty and having a heart. I truly enjoy reading his stories and still marvel at his delightful original art!

  5. I see your point. I read one of Dr. Suess's books several months ago, and the plot and the rhymes were so clever. Wish I could write like that.
