Dr. Seuss Mania: Throw a Party, Plan a Ball, You Can Do It One and All!

It’s Dr. Seuss’ birthday this Friday, March 2nd. I’m a huge Dr. Seuss fan, and I absolutely adore the books. Not only are they fun to read, but they teach important, positive life lessons, and they’re perfect for sparking creativity in kids. From The Cat in the Hat to Green Eggs and Ham to The Lorax (the film opens on Friday, Dr. Seuss’ 108th birthday!) his stories live on through the generations.

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
-Dr. Seuss

  • Pink Yink Drink 10 of 16
    This one, I think, is called a Yink.

    He likes to drink, and drink, and drink.
    The thing he likes to drink is ink.
    The ink he likes to drink is pink.

    then you should get a Yink, I think.
