Reading through Dr. Seuss’ books gives many a sense of nostalgia. Since childhood, we have read of green eggs and ham and the not so scary monsters living in our closets, and these stories live on for our children and our children’s children as well.
Born Theodor Seuss Geisel, the american author wrote and illustrated his own books that, to this day, remain a staple of growing up. With his unique style (in writing and in drawing), as well as his witty rhymes, Dr. Seuss wraps all his books together with a deep insight that is impactful regardless of your age. Dr. Seuss encourages kids to dream bigger, reach further, and never stop using their imagination. All of these are lessons us adults could learn as well.
Join us as we journey through some of Dr. Seuss’ best quotes to live by about love, friendship, life.
