Writing Quotation

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go. -- Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss, the pen name for Theodor Seuss Geisel, was a wonderful storyteller. His simple, lighthearted verse encouraged both fun and social consciousness. He was born on March 2, 1904 and died September 4, 1991. In the United States, schoolchildren kick off National Reading Month in celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday. In Canada, this is Freedom to Read Week. www.freedomtoread.ca

If you have ever enjoyed a Dr. Seuss book (with or without a child to read to), if you have ever picked up a book, magazine or newspaper, or have clicked onto the internet, you might want to take a moment to appreciate the great gift of reading...as well as the freedom and opportunities to use that gift.
