Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
The same might be said for having fun. Children giggle, laugh, and enjoy a special brand of silliness that adults, believing we need to be seen as “proper,” are often hesitant to display. (Adult silliness tends to take other forms that too often involve a few remaining strands of hair desperately combed over growing bald spots, and then paraded around in ridiculously expensive sports cars, but we won’t go there right now…)
Anyway, one man who never forgot how to be an artist or how to have fun was Theodore (“Ted”) Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. Employing his own brand of rhyming fun, he taught generations of children to enjoy reading. In honor of his birthday on March 2nd, many schools will celebrate “Love of Reading.”
