This week, we are doing a little Dr. Seuss author study so I chose one of his titles to share. "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" is a wonderful book for all ages. I read on Wikipedia that this is a title often gifted to new graduates. It is a great story about life and all its ups and downs.
Here is Celeste's favourite part:
"The Waiting Place...
for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a place to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting."
My favourite is:
"You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
in any direction you choose.
You're on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go.
I found a youtube video that is interesting to me because a friend attends this event regularly. I would recommend that you view the video on your own first, before watching it with your children. Burning Man is a week-long creative yearly event in Nevada, USA and this video was made with Burners reciting the Dr. Seuss story.

The idea of Book Sharing Monday is to share your current favourite children's book by posting some photos and a quote from the book. You can keep your post as simple as you wish or write more if you like! We have found Book Sharing Monday wonderful in the past for discovering new-to-us authors and books.
