The Debate~ Dr. Seuss, Real or Fiction
Quote by Dr. Seuss: “We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love”
I went to the show with my grandchildren last weekend. We saw “The Lorax”. It is an animated tale of a creature who shares the power of hope. It also sends the message , if we don’t take care of our planet, we will lose it.
First, I have to wonder where that name came from? The kids could not get it right. I heard it called The Clorox, The Vortex, and The Worax.
They were mesmerized by the colors and the music in the movie. From the dancing goldfish, to the powder puff shaped trees, it was designed to stimulate kids imaginations. The overall story sent a good message about the environment, without it being in your face.
I am amazed how people come up with stories such as this one. I looked up Dr. Seuss and discovered he was a real person. He was born Theodor Seuss Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904.
He started his writing career on the school’s paper at Dartmouth College. He used Seuss and later Dr. Seuss as a pseudonym for his writing career.
During World War II, he was a political cartoonist. After the war, Seuss moved with his wife to La Jolla, California. It was there that he became aware of American school children’s illiteracy, which was the foundation for the “Beginner Books” that Seuss is perhaps most famous for.
We all love Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat , One Fish, Two Fish and so many more. I read these to my kids and now to my Grand kids.
Thank you Dr. Seuss
