Today is Dr. Seuss’ birthday.
In my art room we celebrated by doing a couple of things.
Of course, we made hats.
Cat in the Hat hats.
But before we made the hats we read Dr. Seuss’ final book, published posthumously, Hooray for Diffendoofer Day, written with Jack Prelutsky and Lane Smith.
“All schools for miles and miles around
Must take a special test,
To see who’s learning such and such –
To see which school’s the best.
If our small school does not do well,
Then it will be torn down,
And you will have to go to school
In dreary Flobbertown.”
