C is for The Cat in the Hat
For this, my third year doing the challenge, I am going literary. For every letter of the alphabet I will talk about a book, an author or a character from fiction or myth that made an impression, was inspirational, or caused me to think.
Today is easy for me. The Cat in the Hat remains an all time favorite picture book. (There is another one and it will be covered by the letter E.)
I know some people are horrified by the mayhem, but I love it. And the lesson at the end, that we must be responsible for cleaning up the messes we make, is delivered loud and clear without any preaching.
Dr. Seuss was a genius.
I'm so in love with The Cat in the Hat I have this t-shirt and blue denim shirt and Christmas hat.
I'm so in love with The Cat in the Hat that I have these window sticker thingies stuck to the window above my computer.
I'm so in love with the Cat in the Hat that my cousin John and I are still affectionately known by our families as Thing 1 and Thing 2.
Do you have a favorite Dr. Seuss book or character?
