I heard someone recently say “It’s good to be different”. Those words have rolled around in my head since then leaving me to wonder what is “different” or rather what is “normal”? More importantly who determines which is which? We all have the notion that we are normal, regular people but how do we know for sure?Continue reading
I love Dr. Suess cupcakes. I am working on ways to be the it mom. You know the one that sends in the fancy pinterest worthy treats to school. The problem is I am not able to do those things. I have to much to do. I figured out a way to participate by cutting corners but not cutting out the fun. These are Cupcake Recipe for Kids, all are super simple “recipes” that anyone can make. They are cupcakes for the Reading Across America party and they are also cupcakes that my kids were able to decorate. I love the fact that my children get to learn facts about Dr. Seuss and spend time reading.Continue reading
Did you know that March 2nd is the birthday of Dr. Seuss? It is also National Read Across America Day! On Read Across America Day or also known as Dr. Seuss Day, all across the United States, we celebrate our love for reading and help to get others into reading too.
I have always been an avid reader, but getting my son to love reading has been a chore. He just wasn’t that into it. I started introducing him to books that are about baseball, which is his favorite sport. This helped him to enjoy reading more and he even started to read on his own without me having to tell him to. If your kids aren’t book lovers yet, take it slow and let them choose from a large variety of genres and topics that they are into. You will have a better chance of them finding something that they will really love this way.
Many communities also celebrate Read Across America Day with special events at schools, parks or churches. Look into what your child’s school does to celebrate and find out how you can be a part of the event. If your neighborhood has a local Community Center, they may be hosting an event to celebrate as well. Get out there and celebrate your love of books! In the meantime, here are 10 of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. I love them because they stand the test of time, generation after generation and never get old. What are some of your favorite Dr. Seuss books?
