Diversity

We see them come.
We see them go.
Some are fast.
And some are slow.
Some are high.
And some are low.
Not one of them
is like another.
Don't ask us why.
Go ask your mother.
- One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

Seuss showed us many things, including how to cherish Diversity. He gave us an appreciation for differences in shapes, sizes, abilities, looks, and language. He even created much of his own vocabulary to give us those worlds and books we enjoy so much.

HAPPY EASTER!

Suess is brilliant in this. "Stars upon Thars" was so insightful.

Nice, never heard of Dr Seuss before today, but I love learning new things and children stuff/cartoons, and will definitely be coming back for more.

Just read this one for Dr Seuss' birthday with my daycare children. They always want to stop and gaze at the pictures. Another A to Z-er.

I always found his approach to topics to be great. I've read Seuss to all my kids.

I love the way Dr. Seuss tackled important concepts in the guise of children's literature. His works transcend all ages.

Dr Seuss had a wonderful way of making his poems fun for children, as well as their parents. I always enjoyed reading his books to my boys when they were growing up. He had the ability to always sneak in valuable lessons. Delightful 'D' post, Sylvia!

I'm wondering if anyone can read these posts without reading them aloud? This one is one of those I had to read out. The diversity of AtoZ's a lot of fun.
