A Favorite for all Ages
We have had Dr. Seuss books in our house for as long as we have had children. The first few books were thrift store finds and we have slowly grown our collection. When I decluttered our books, we kept our Dr. Seuss books!
We all love the books and we range in age from 6-44 years old! Dr. Seuss books never get old for adults to read to children who are pre-readers, and they are perfect for children who are just starting to read independently.What are your family favorites? #DrSeuss #drseussbirthday Click To Tweet
Our Family’s Favorites
My husband said he couldn’t pick a favorite because they are ALL his favorites, but when pressed, he chose Oh, the Things You can Think

My oldest son loves Oh, The Places You’ll Go. This is particularly poignant as he graduates middle school and begins high school next year.
My middle son loves How the Grinch Stole Christmas
My youngest son loves What was I Scared of?
My favorite is his defining book The Cat in the Hat. Did you know the book was the result of a challenge from his publishers to write a story using only 225 “new reader” vocabulary words? Pretty cool.

I not only love the stories and colorful illustrations of Dr. Seuss books, but I love the fact that Dr. Seuss’ first book, And to Think that I Saw it on Mulberry Street, was rejected 27 times before finally being published! That encourages me to persevere despite rejection.Do you know how many times #DrSeuss was rejected before his first book was published? #drseussbirthday Click To Tweet
Dr. Seuss books are timeless and a worthwhile investment for children of all ages.
