It's below zero. It's Read Across America Day. Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

It's March. MARCH. Spring begins. It's below zero. What is going on?

On a brighter note, Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

In honor of his birthday, it's Read Across America Day .

Did you know that Dr. Seuss's And to Think I Saw it on Mulberry Street got 37 rejections before it got published? 37. Think about that, all you who write. I guess editors thought it would teach children to tell tall tales. Wow. I thought it was the best lesson ever when my son was in the tall-tale-telling mode. It helped us distinguish the two: fact and fiction.

Dr. Seuss, I love you!
