Everyone is Equal

I'm quite happy to say
That the Sneetches got really quite smart on that day,
The day they decided that Sneetches are Sneetches
And no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches.
                                         - The Sneetches


Seuss is one of my favorite Fathers of Equality. So many of his tales taught lessons without preaching. Today's Seuss-ism is a reminder that Everyone is Created Equal. It's up to us to model that behavior.

So true, we are all born equal it is what we do with our lives that count.

I could not have said it better. Dr. Seuss could teach everyone a little something about equality!

Good luck with the 2015 A to Z Challenge!

Yes, totally agree! I recently did a performance for a couple of primary schools where we acted out Dr Seuss stories. I'm in love with how well he teaches perfect lessons about life while taking you on this fantastic ride of imagination.

The Dr certainly was one for equality and he told the world is such a unique and loving way!!! Glad I stopped by from the #AtoZChallenge!

The Sneetches are a great way to teach kids about prejudice and pride. Dr. Seuss was a genius.
