Tongue twisting rhymes & fanciful characters,
… beloved trademark features of the unique Dr Seuss.
To say Theodor Seuss Geisel had a way with words would be an understatement for sure!
We adore the fact that he even invented many words. Did you know that the word ‘nerd’ appeared for the very first time EVER in If I Ran the Zoo?
And some of those character names .. from Ham-ikka-Schnim-ikka-Schnam-ikka Schnopp (oh yes!), to the Tizzle-Topped Grouse. There’s never a dull moment in his books.
In honour of 2nd March, the birthday of the great man himself, My Book Corner has gathered together a collection of our favourite quotes.
Browse through to see if you spot yours. If not … share it in the comments section below.
Wishing you all a fun-filled, Seussy day!
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best. Wherever you go, you will top all the rest. Except when you don’t. Because, sometimes, you won’t.
Christmas doesn’t come from a store, maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more….
I meant what I said, And I said what I meant
What a lot of funny things go by.
A person’s a person, no matter how small.
So, open your mouth, lad! For every voice counts!
It is fun to have fun, But you have to know how.
Sometimes I have the feeling there’s a ZLOCK behind the CLOCK.
“But I like to eat cake in a tub,” laughed the cat. “You should try it some time,”
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.
