Dr. Seuss Birthday

Ted_Geisel_NYWTS_2_crop

Today is Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) 109th birthday!  Dr. Seuss is considered one of the greatest children’s book writers and illustrators of all time.  Having published 46 picture books, The National Educational Association adopted his birthday, March 2, as National Read Across America Day.  Since today is Saturday and schools are out, many schools participated in National Read Across America day on Friday!  Here is Rick and Bubba reading the classic Dr. Seuss book “Green Eggs and Ham!”

So what are my favorite Dr. Seuss books?  There are so many I could choose from but these five have a special connection to me!

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

A classic.  A Christmas tradition every year!

The Cat in the Hat

Dr. Seuss most famous story!

The Sneetches and Other Stories

I always liked this story!  I also loved the The Zax.

Green Eggs and Ham

Will you try the green eggs and ham?

There’s A Wocket in My Pocket

This story used to scare me!

 

Happy Platypus Day 2013!

PERRY

It’s Platypus Day!  The first Saturday in March has been designed as an unofficial holiday to celebrate the teal colored; beaver tail; teeth chattering platypus we all know and love.  Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb has become a very popular character across the world.  Why should you like him you ask?

Perry the Platypus kicks butt, defeats Dr. Doofenshmirtz all the time, cares about Phineas and Ferb, and even has his own theme song!  He’s a semi aquatic, egg-laying mammal of action!  This year’s dance from Disney is a parody of the song Y.M.C.A. from The Village People.  This song titled “The Agents of O.W.C.A.” is an okay song.  I liked last year’s song The Platypus Walk more than this one!  Have a look!

The Phineas and Ferb crew even got into the Harlem Shake craze!  I really liked this one!
