One of my students came up to me today during reading time…
“Ms. Lewis, you know that Cat in the Hat guy you love?!”
“Yes, Dr. Seuss.”
“Yeah yeah. In my reading book there is a story about him and it had pictures.”
“Oh neat! We should have read that during Dr. Seuss month. Can I borrow it to read today?”
She hands me the book and amidst the photographs and his biography, there are a bunch of bronze statues.
“What the…I MUST GO THERE NOW!”
There is a memorial garden in Springfield (his birthplace) with a giant ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go’ book and bronze statues from all his books. Next item on my bucket list found!
