It is here! It is here! It is heeeeere!
Today is March 20, Opening Day for the Needle and Thread: Stitching for Literacy 2008 Bookmark Challenge.
Above is a nod to Horton Hears a Who, the 2008 movie, the 1999 movie on my How the Grinch Stole Christmas tape, and the Dr. Seuss classic picture book. I can’t think of a better way to kick off a literacy campaign than to celebrate Dr. Seuss. He taught me to read. More importantly, he made reading fun.
As a kid, I was not much of a reader. I didn’t do a lot of sitting still, and it’s hard to read while riding a bike, building a fort, playing schmerltz at summer camp, etc. My sister read. Her books were boring, and so was she when she read.
But Dr. Seuss captivated me. We had a large collection of I Can Read It All By Myself Beginner Books, and I read them. Over and over.
I still read Dr. Seuss books, but the best way of all to enjoy them is to listen and look while Mike reads aloud.
Let’s get reading and stitching!
