Chat with the Cat in the Hat

"Who is THAT on my couch?" Tinkerbell exclaims!
Today is Dr. Seuss's Birthday!
Happy Birthday to a brilliant man, a legend.

A past student of mine, Jeanette Bradley posted this great poem he wrote on writing. Words I try to live by;

It has often been said
there's so much to be read.
you can never cram
all those words in your head.

So the writer who breeds
more words than he needs
is making a chore
for the reader who reads.

That's why my belief is
the briefer the brief is, 
the greater the sigh
of the reader's relief is.
Cat in the hat plays "catch a tiger by the tail", with Tink.
