Happy Birthday to Theodor Seuss Geisel. My heartfelt, grateful thanks for the side-eye looks of horror and confusion from volunteer readers that I bring into my PreK class and then unleash the good Doctor’s work on. Their disbelief that they have to learn what is essentially a new language, on the fly, in front of twenty five wiggly four-year-olds warms my heart on the coldest of days.

The possibilities are endless, and that’s the kind of great feeling we could all use right about now.
