I have a confession. I don't love allll Dr. Seuss books. BUT and that is a big but :) , I do love the effect he has on my students. Children that fight me tooth and nail to resist reading, will beat each other up to get to pick up a copy of One Fish, Two Fish.
The librarian asked me today what my favorite Dr. Seuss book was, and I had to think about it for a minute... so here are my top 4...
#4- Green Eggs and Ham- My earliest childhood memory involving reading was of Sam-I-am. It was the first "real" book that I remember reading. I love reading the book and then showing my kids the cute cartoon.
#3- The Lorax- The message in the Lorax is incredibly powerful- period. And yes, I am taking my students to see the movie in the theater. Yay!
#2- The Grinch- Who doesn't love that furry, green guy. My own children fell so hard in love with the grinch this year that we watched the cartoon version of the movie no less than 15 times this December. Is there anything cuter than Cindy Lou Who?!?

Now it's your turn. What is your favorite Dr. Seuss book??
