I love Dr. Seuss. There is a quality in his writing that finds a balance. Yes, we can say what we think, but in his writing he also writes about the need for kindness, loving those around us, and accepting we are all different.

Where else could we find a cat in the hat who carries a fish around in a small bowl, not having him/her for lunch? I am not sure if it is a girl or boy fish. Does it matter? I think not. Where else would we find Whoville where we explore who we are alongside fictional characters and others we live with? We discover there that we need those differences. They make us special and unique.


About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  1. Love this post, Ivon! Dr. Seuss sure knew how to wrap up life and tie it with golden bows. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Dr. Seuss is one of my favorites! Even the smallest who or person makes a difference.

  3. We need a modern day Dr Seuss for adults to get the same message across that there is a
    need for kindness, loving those around us, and accepting we are all different, that he does for children. No other species destroys itself as readily as we do and it’s time for change.

  4. My favorite was the Butter Battle that taught wars were silly. Fighting over how you butter bread which is basically what war is all about. Something that can be easy talked about and solved.
