Day 1724 - Dr Seuss Inspiration

Inspiration comes from everywhere ....
... including children's books.  Dr Seuss is great for his words of wisdom.  Sometimes it's words in their simplest form that impact on us the most.

What children's books inspire you?

  4. Oh, how I love Dr Seuss! You've nailed it. When I was at uni I had a six-month internship, and at the end of it my boss gave me a copy of Oh! The Places You'll Go! I almost cried, which sounds pathetic, but Seuss is an all-time favourite and it was perfect.

  5. I love Dr Seuss. I like Eric Carle's The Artist who painted blue horses. And both Princess Smartypants and the Paperbag Princess for girls...

  6. This week I read The Lorax ebook with a group of needy year 8s. They loved it and thankfully, none of them had seen the film. I love the line, "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, it's not going to get better, it's not". It opened a dialogue about respecting our school and our equipment. They loved it. X

  7. Dr. Seuss has always been my favourite, and I'm so happy that Bell fell in love with his stories too.

  8. I love how much my boys are loving Dr Seuss. (They call him Dr 'Zoos' :)
    We have The Lorax downloaded but still haven't had a chance to watch it yet. Hopefully soon!

  9. Sometimes I think children's books are better than adults books! One of my favourite quotes is Dr Seuss: "Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You." Visiting via With Some Grace #FYBF :)

  10. I love the simple stories that Mem Fox writes. Ten little fingers and ten little toes always gets me sentimental about babies. They aren't little for very long and reading books like that inspire me to live in the moment and not take any season with my girls for granted.

  11. We have almost the entire collection I must get some out over the weekend and read to the kids in bed when it's UBER cold at 5.30am and we are all awake! I know you're up then too so I'll be thinking of you ;) x
