“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child.”
These very wise words came from beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss, who would have celebrated his 110th birthday on March 2. Although his last book was published in 1990, his oeuvre is still considered to be a staple in children’s literature today.
Here are the top five most circulated Dr. Seuss books so far this year at JMRL:
1. Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss — A collection of tongue twisters for the young reader to read by himself.
2. The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss – Two children sitting at home on a rainy day are visited by the Cat in the Hat who shows them some tricks and games.
3. Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! by Dr. Seuss — The possibilities are endless in Dr. Seuss’s classic Beginner Book! Young readers will delight in “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!” which celebrates the imagination and encourages young readers to think… about thinking!
4. The Lorax by Dr. Seuss — Long before “going green” was mainstream, Dr. Seuss’s Lorax spoke for the trees and warned of the dangers of disrespecting the environment.
5. Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss — Bored with hatching an egg, a lazy bird persuades Horton the elephant to do the job.
The staff at the library will be happy to help you find the book that is just right for you.
