Tomorrow is National Read Across America Day, also known as Dr. Seuss Day. Y’all knew from one of my very first Undie Chronicles that I adore Dr. Seuss. Do y’all remember “Man-Style Goes to the Zoo?” *waggles eyebrows*
Needless to say, Dr. Seuss hits high on my laugh-o-meter and he was a GENIUS. Who else in the world has gotten more kids to read?
And who else got this much wisdom across in such accessible language?
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.

Today you are you,
That is truer than true.
There is no one alive
Who is youer than you.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

The National Education Association is sponsoring reading events across America this week, and there are exceptionally cool related products. I knew y’all would want to know about them. Here’s their Facebook page.
RedBubble has this Read Across America t-shirt:
A recipe for Green Eggs and Ham.
AND there are several events going on in cities around the U.S.
There’s a Read Across America Tour – today they’re in Phoenix, tomorrow San Diego (Dr. Seuss’ home town!), then Denver and finally, the Children’s Museum in Atlanta. I hope you check out Thing 1 and Thing 2 at your local tour stop. Also, if you live in the Show Me State (Missouri), there’s the Cat Tracks Tour.
Do you read to children? Like me, do you read Dr. Seuss for yourself? What is your favorite Dr. Seuss book, movie or quote? Enquiring minds love to know these things here at More Cowbell!
