    Green Eggs and Ham, green eggs and ham,
    I do not like green eggs and Ham.
    I do not like them, Sam I am.
    I do not like them in a tree.
    I do not like them let me be...

    LOVE Green Eggs and Ham.

    And don't forget the stand by "Oh the Places You'll Go"...I think that book has been given to EVERY high school graduate since it was written. I also liked "Go Dog Go"...

    I don't remember the Lorax at all. Cat in hat is iconic. A lot of Seuss is fun but drawings are not good enough; they are more about the wordplay. I think the Eric Carle fabric line for Caterpillar totally missed the mark in color saturation and lots of his work will become classic if not iconic.

    Before I retired, I was a 6th grade teacher. Did a fun unit in which the kids wrote and did "raps" based on Dr. Seuss books. Loved Dr. Seuss, as there were great morals in his books.

    My favorite Dr Suess book in "The Sleep Book"....I got one in 1966 and still have it today...but I never see it around anymore..and that is sad, cause it's a great book to read at the end of the day!!

    My son's favorite was "Are You My Mother?" He got teary-eyed every time we read it.

    My favorite is "Oh the Places you can go"
    I've given to all the graduates in the family with personal notes inside and then had all at the grad party sign making it a personal keepsake for the grad to look upon at different stages of their lives.

    I am the Lorax--I speak for the trees! I've noticed that the trees along the street in Wiesbaden (Germany) are numbered. I hear that they take their trees very seriously here.
    Meanwhile, I do like Dr. Seuss. "Oh, the Places You Can Go" is a great one. One of my favorites is not a rhyming one. It's Bartholomew Cubbins and the Oobleck. If you haven't read it, you should. Goes to show what awful things can happen when we are dissatisfied with what we have already.

    We read Dr. Suess to the kids since they were very young. Our older son understood the nuclear message long before we thought he would. We always called the book "The Butter Side Up"! Haven't thought about it in years! Thanks for jogging my memory!

    We read Dr. Seuss books to our girls a lot. The Lorax was a favorite.
