The Cat. You know the one. Yeah, the one in the hat.

It was 50 years ago today
Dr. Seuss brought out the Cat to play....

Ahh, forget the Beatles riff. The point is, today is the Cat in the Hat's 50th birthday (though really... the Cat just doesn't age. No grey fur? It isn't fair), so for Poetry Friday, I want to put the focus squarely on Dr. Seuss.


Well, by suggesting everyone go read a book of his. Read it to a child or 10. Read it to yourself. Revel in the language and the storytelling, and marvel at the illustrations. (Then maybe even donate that book to a school or shelter or friend.)

Or go to Dylan Hears a Who and hear Seuss sung!

Whatever you do, just make it a Seuss-y day. You'll be glad you did.
