Greetings Fanpeople! Adrianna here, posting on day four of Blogging A to Z challenge!
Today I’ll be talking about a beloved writer and to a huge role in childhoods everywhere:
He’s known for his silly rhyming verse and charming pictures. As well as the little life lessons hidden in the beautifully odd stories.
I think one of my favorite things about Dr. Seuss is that nothing was too outrageous of an idea. The man wrote a story about Green Eggs and Ham for crying out loud! *(Random fact: That book only has 50 unique words)
He made up creatures, words, games, stories, and odd contraptions so out of this world the only place you’d only to see it is in a Dr. Seuss book.
“There’s a Wocket in My Pocket” was basically a book just about crazy creatures who lived in places that rhymed with their names. And did anyone care? No. They loved it.
Because no matter what you do, when you do it with charm, originality, and of course rhymes, it will sore.
He had a way of doing the silliest things, the silliest of stories, rhymes and characters, but still saying things that need to be said.
Know many other writers who put out books about respecting people despite who they are by writing a story about an Elephant finding a civilization on a speck of dust? I don’t think so.
Or how about a story about a fuzzy creature sent to protect a widely colorful forest?
And that story left us all with one memorable and impactful meaning and quote:
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing’s going to get better. It’s not.” -Dr. Seuss
Dr. Seuss shows us that if we say true to ourselves, no matter how wacky and weird that self is, things will turn out alright.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
Behind all that beautiful nonsense, he was a very smart man. So when you wonder if people will still respect you even with your strangeness of whatever kind (Because we’re all a little weird. And life’s a little weird) remember that as long as you stay true, there’s no telling what you’ll do!
Oh, the places you’ll go!
(Forgive me all the quotes, I love it.)
Have a good one Fanpeople! Stay weird!
