Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day 2016

On the occasion of Dr. Seuss’s birthday — and Read Across America Day — Shoshana has written a brief ode. (And that’s her ear.)

The sun doesn’t shine, and it’s too wet to play,
but today makes The Horn Book say “Hip, hip, hooray!”
A Seussian birthday! We’re sending three cheers!
In fact, we have Seuss coming out of our ears!


Also: these are Katie’s mom’s shoes:

    I. <3. Those. Shoes.
